📙 Safety of Silicone Breast Implants by Committee on the Safety of Silicone Breast Implants, Institute of Medicine — download pdf


The Dow Corning case raised serious questions about the safety of silicone breast implants and about larger issues of medical device testing and patient education. "Safety of Silicone Breast Implants" presents a well-documented, thoughtful exploration of the safety of these devices, drawing conclusions from the available research base and suggesting further questions to be answered. This book also examines the sensitive issues surrounding women's decisions about implants. In reaching conclusions, the committee reviews: the history of the silicone breast implant and the development of its chemistry; the wide variety of U.S.-made implants and their regulation by the Food and Drug Administration; frequency and consequences of local complications from implants; the evidence for and against links between implants and autoimmune disorders, connective tissue disease, neurological problems, silicone in breast milk, or a proposed new syndrome; and evidence that implants may be associated with lower frequencies of breast cancer. "Safety of Silicone Breast Implants" provides a comprehensive, well-organized review of the science behind one of the most significant medical controversies of our time.
