I had been following with interest the progress of the AirXpanders through the initial development process and it was a great opportunity to be one of the first surgeons to use them. I believe this development to be the greatest advancement in tissue expander and breast reconstruction since the development of the integrated port expanders. It has completely changed my practice. In particular the removal of intermittent needle based inflations has been particularly advantageous to improving patient anxiety and comfort levels. Similar to being given a PCA (Patient Controlled Analgesia) to control pain, patients embrace being in control of the expansion process and can temporarily cease at any time if feeling any discomfort at all. The pure simplicity of the patient controlled expansion is the strength of the device.
