Ruptured Breast Implant

The patient in the video below presents a valve leakage from her 14 year old McGhan 240 saline filled breast implant. Upon removal of the implant Dr. Stuart Linder identifies the cause coming from the breast implant valve. It appears that the valve leakage caused roughly 85% of the saline volume loss.
