Implant Removal due to possible mentor recall

Recommended Posts

For the past year, I have been thinking of getting an implant removal. I haven't had any complications so far, but I've found living with implants annoying. Also, the articles on BII and Lymphoma diseases have created massive anxiety for me. I reached out to my surgeon and the secretary passed on a clinician's letter to say the Therapeutic Goods Administration have proposed to recall Mentor Textured Implants, which incidentally I have. Just thought I give a heads up to others! 

The TGA has informed MENTOR® of a “Notice of Proposal to Suspend” (Notice) for a period of six (6) months relating to the following products: 
• MENTOR® SILTEX® Cohesive I / 354-4400 (ARTG 110588)  

• MENTOR® SILTEX® CPG 334-1304 (ARTG 110589)  

• MENTOR® SILTEX® Contour Profile Becker 35 Expander 324-1305 (ARTG 110592)  

• MENTOR® SILTEX® Round Becker 25 Expander 354-8000 (ARTG 130678)  

• MENTOR® SILTEX® Cohesive II / 324-4350 (ARTG 119809)

• CPX4 Breast Tissue Expander (ARTG 226977)

• CPX4 Breast Tissue Expander with Suture Tabs (ARTG 226982)
