Faulty French breast implants exported to the Czech Republic

22-12-2011

The faulty French breast implants suspected of being potentially carcinogenic were exported to 65 countries including the Czech Republic. The implants are also more likely to split and leak than other kinds. It is expected that the French government will announce a recall of the implants, which will involve tens of thousands of recipients being called in for surgery. It is not yet clear how many Czech women –and foreign patients who underwent surgery at Czech clinics- this may concern. The French authorities are expected to issue a statement on Friday.
