Evemon implants not updating

But according to our experts — all of whom are intent on correcting misinformation and offering much-needed perspective — there is no need to panic.“I’m shocked by these recent headlines,” says Laurie A.Casas, a senior clinician educator at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and a past president of the Aesthetic Surgery Education & Research Foundation (ASERF), one of the groups appointed to the advisory council in 2011.But I give my patients all choices and discuss all risks.BIA-ALCL has been part of my informed consent since 2010.”Before vilifying an entire category of implants, it’s important to recognize that each implant manufacturer uses a different type of texture, produced by a unique process, such as salt extraction or stamping.Casas estimates using 70 percent textured implants on her patients — partly because teardrop-shaped implants (as opposed to round) only come with textured shells, and a fair number of women require the form and definition that they provide.While choice of implant is ultimately the patient’s to make, “most women have an anatomical issue that dictates what type of implant will best make them look the way they want to look,” Casas says.This news should prompt further research into the disease and other related disorders, and motivate patients and surgeons to more frequently monitor the status of breast implants by physical exam or MRI.Despite the small risk, I believe [implants] are safe when properly used by qualified plastic surgeons, and that they provide a benefit to patients, especially those seeking breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.

Now factor in near-equivalent numbers of implants for the years between 20.Also, as Casas notes, we don't know the full pathology of the people who died, to determine what they died from.Furthermore, the FDA admitted in its update that the reports in its registry “may contain incomplete, inaccurate, untimely, unverified, or biased data.Additionally, 312 of the 359 reports revealed the type of fill used in the implants: 186 contained silicone gel and 126 were saline-filled.That’s a lot of figures, but we still don’t have all the facts — including those concerning the outstanding 128 implants of which the surface type was unknown.

Now factor in near-equivalent numbers of implants for the years between 20.

Also, as Casas notes, we don't know the full pathology of the people who died, to determine what they died from.

Furthermore, the FDA admitted in its update that the reports in its registry “may contain incomplete, inaccurate, untimely, unverified, or biased data.

Additionally, 312 of the 359 reports revealed the type of fill used in the implants: 186 contained silicone gel and 126 were saline-filled.

That’s a lot of figures, but we still don’t have all the facts — including those concerning the outstanding 128 implants of which the surface type was unknown.

Now, fast-forward seven years: As of February 1, 2017, the FDA has received a total of 359 reports of BIA-ALCL, including those nine deaths the highlighted.
