Patient-Controlled Tissue Expanders

AirXpanders

AeroForm Tissue Expander System is an innovative tissue expansion system designed for breast reconstruction. It is placed behind the chest muscle similarly to traditional saline-filled expanders, but rather than expanding via injections of saline solution, the AeroForm is needle-free and is expanded by the patient using a wireless, handheld dosage controller to release carbon dioxide. AeroForm was granted U.S. FDA de novo marketing authorization in 2016, received CE mark in Europe in 2012 and Australian TGA certification in 2013.
