This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Seven leading Congressmen have written to FDA Commissioner David Kessler urging him to comment on US and international studies of silicone implant safety and to reassure women. So far, he has refused. Commenting on the British health authoritys' statement discounting a link between silicone breast implants and connective tissue diseases, an FDA spokesman said: "We are encouraged by recent studies showing that the immune-disease problem is smaller than we believed .... But the studies are not definitive. Nothing has been said about [implant] breakage and migration (of silicone within the body)."
