Urgent implants strive for an unusual cancerous form


The French Medicines Agency first came to advise against the breastbreaks called textured vegetation on Wednesday. After that, journalists, coordinated by ICIJI's correspondent network, questioned about suspected risks with the products.

Across the world, plastic surgeons have reported 615 cases of BIA-ALCL lymph cancer, breast implants, and 53 are only in France. In Sweden there are six known cases according to the Breast Registration Register (Brimp). Disease is much more common in women with rigid or smooth implants, although causal relatives are not cleared.

Swedish MPA considers it "too early to find a recommendation for the Swedish market", but you feel that you should contact your healthcare provider if you're worried.

Fredrik Gewalli, chairman of the Swedish Association for Esthetic Plastic Surgery, writes in turn to TT that the organization "Since 2016 has encouraged a caution in the use of macro-implanted breast implants" and its members mainly use other products . Gewalli also notes that BIA-ALCL is very scarce.

But of those implants which was implemented in Sweden in 2017, known as Brimp, was 88 per cent – 4,664 each – from impressive models, according to the annual report of the register. Brimp is also worried about products that are "presented in an incredibly and unconscious way in Sweden".

A number of studies also indicate that some automatic illnesses known as rheumatoid arthritis are significantly more prevalent among women with implants, although it is not clear why. At that risk, only the Medical Products Agency answers that the agency has no ongoing investigation.

Brimp has recorded around 65 per cent of all breast implants in Sweden, about 19,000 since 2014. A total of over 10 million women worldwide have received breast implants over the last decade, according to the international review

The best statistics there is a doubt that over the incidents and the damage to the implant have been found in the US FDA. Your case also reports overseas cases.

And the numbers show that the problems with breast implants have been much more than what is known. The FDA has allowed manufacturers to hide and hide because of cuttings and other injuries have been considered as regular events that do not need to be reported.

When these figures are now included, the reports have slipped from less than 200 per year to a total of 4,500 in 2017 and there are only more than 8,000 in the first half of 2018. It shows the analysis it is ICIJ has done with partners, including TT and SVT in its global review of medical devices.

"There were the problems there through the time," said Madris Tomes, who worked with injuries reports in the FDA. She is the founder of Incident Events, a company that follows such reports, and finds the increasing number of breast implants in 2017.

However, the FDA does not see the increase as a "new public health issue".

The trend goes again in Europe. Here, some manufacturers have not reported any implanted implants, according to the Dutch authorities.

In Sweden, the number of incident and injury reports has also increased, from a few times a year to 63 in 2018 (until November 6) due to different reporting procedures by manufacturers. The most common problems are that the implants are cut or compressed. What products have caused problems, the Swedish Medicines Agency can not say "because it can be assumed that the companies in question can suffer harm if correcting the data."

Allergan and Mentor's makers say their products are safe.

Most people have Breast implants are satisfied, but surprisingly many go out of work – almost 170,000 women worldwide in 2017, according to a study. The FDA warns openly that every fifth woman will need to remove breast implants within a decade because they break, collapse or when crane tissue falls around them and causing pain.
