Sweden’s Medical Products Agency (LÃƒÂ¤kemedelsverket) has banned three brands of silicone breast implants due to their risk of bursting. Gnarly.
They estimated that some 35,000 European women have had their breasts augmented with dangerous Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) since 2001. Sweden is following France’s example, who has done the same and is now offering the 1,000 affected women an alternatives.
“This is the type of information that we are trying to find out. We hope to be able to release information as soon as possible,” said Staffan StrÃƒÂ¶mberg at the agency.
StrÃƒÂ¶mberg said he does not see any reason for Swedish women who have these implants to be overly concerned at this time.
