Biofilm: All information you need to know

Certain germs produce a sticky coating that protects them from attack. These germs include widespread skin germs (Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus) and water germs (Pseudomonas aeruginosa).

The shell consists of proteins and sugars and ensures the survival of the germs even under extreme conditions. Antibiotics and antibodies cannot kill the germs under this protective layer. These germs are particularly dangerous if they form a biofilm on the surface of implants.

The only way to get rid of the germs is to remove the implant. Special precautions are therefore taken at CenterPlast when handling implants. We recommend cleaning the skin thoroughly with special antiseptic soaps before the operation. Immediately before the operation, the skin is carefully disinfected with an alcohol solution three times.

The nipples are covered with sterile plasters. Medical instruments are reprocessed according to the strictest regulations. We administer one-time antibiotics to patients before surgery. The tissue is prepared very carefully and gently with a scalpel. The implants are inserted using a “no-touch technique” and previously flushed with two different antibiotics.
