Cooperation between plastic surgeons and radiologists is fundamental when breast prosthesis rupture is suspected. We describe our experience managing the case of suspected implant rupture in a patient that underwent CT scan imaging for thoracic pain. Poor clinical information given to radiologists leads to wrong diagnosis: during surgery, both prostheses were checked revealing no signs of rupture. Full communication among different specialists involved in the multidisciplinary approach is always recommended, and an easy-to-use national breast implant register would allow a better management of patients' follow-up and eventual preoperative planning.
