No evidence to remove implants4th January 2012
Health secretary Andrew Lansley has said that a government review into the rupture rate of banned PIP breast implants – due to be published later this week - has so far found no evidence for removing them.
The implants caused a health scare after French authorities found a rupture rate of 5% and recommended implants were removed, though figures for the UK have suggested a much lower rate. The implants by the French firm Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) contain industrial grade silicone gel, rather than medical grade.
