Arms Assigned Interventions
B
Standard procedure for removal of capsule; no mesna
Drug: Mesna
A. Mesna will be used to aid in the removal of the capsule when capsulectomy is performed
Experimental: A.
The use of Mesna of removal of capsule for capsular contracture.
Drug: Mesna
A. Mesna will be used to aid in the removal of the capsule when capsulectomy is performed

Detailed Description:

Mesna is a FDA approved drug for the treatment of respiratory diseases and is used a protective agent against drugs in oncology patients. It has also been used in Gynecologic surgery and ENT. Mesna is a drug that breaks down adhesions between tissue layers.
