FDA Revisits Breast Implant Safety Debate


The FDA is taking another look at the safety of breast implants. A panel of experts are meeting with researchers, plastic surgeons and implant makers today, and also met yesterday. The meeting comes just two days after the administration issued letters to two implant manufacturers for failing to comply with the agency's requirements. The FDA is not issuing any new restrictions or warnings just yet, but they wish to learn more after some women have suffered pain and fatigue from some implants. Also, the FDA and other regulators are grappling with how to manage a recently confirmed link to a rare cancer.
