The TGA’s proposed breast implant ban exposes a litany of failures, and fails to protect women

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

The proposed ban on some textured breast implants announced by the Australian pharmaceuticals and medical devices regulator earlier this week tells us something very disquieting about the effectiveness of consumer protection.

It will not reassure women living with breast implants concerned about their risk of cancer, or anyone else with an implantable medical device regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
