NEW MEDICAL RESEARCH –

1.
"Release of Low Molecular Weight Silicones and Platinum from Silicone Breast Implants", Leakage of Low Molecular weight Poly (dimethylcyclosiloxanes) and Platinum was determined by using explanted silicone implants. - "Analytical Chemistry", Volume 69, Number 23, Pages 4912-4916, December 1, 1997 - Department of  Pathology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX 77030

2.
“Cyclosiloxanes Produce Fatal Liver and Lung Damage In Mice” (predominant low molecular weight cyclic silicones found in breast implants)  “Our findings are significant because in vitro experiments have demonstrated that CSs  can migrate out of Breast Implants”Department of Pathology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston Texas,77030. Environmental Health Perspectives – Volume 7, Number 2, February 1999.

3. “LIQUID SILICONE, PLATINUM CONCENTRATION and PLATINUM OXIDATION STATES In BODY FLUIDS, TISSUE, and EXPLANTS from WOMEN EXPOSED TO SILICONE and SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS by IC – ICPMS”:
 
a. Recent studies have shown that significant amounts of Platinum (Pt) occur in silicone breast implant gel. Platinum has also been shown to leak out of intact implants and accumulate in the tissue of women exposed to silicone breast implants.
  b.Toxic Platinum (Pt) and silicone were discovered in WHOLE BLOOD, URINE, HAIR, NAILS, SWEAT, BREAST MILK from women who were exposed to SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS. “Saline Breast Implant fluids DID NOT contain detectable levels of Pt”.

SILICONE DEATH RELATED NEWS ITEMS

In 1976, the FDA sent out a “Talk Paper” memo to drug, chemical device, implant manufacturers, that liquid silicone when injected into the human body would potentially be deadly…re – Vassallo vs Baxter Healthcare
HYPERLINK "http://www.socialaw.com/sjcslip/7631.htlm" www.socialaw.com/sjcslip/7631.htlm “According to Heyer-Schulte’s own internal correspondence, the company was aware of a “Talk Paper” issued by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 1976 that documented migration to the brain, lungs, and heart, and death following injections of liquid silicone into the human body.”  In 1975, The State of Nevada created and passed legislation making the use of liquid silicone for body enhancement to be a criminal offense.  Even though the FDA warned silicone implant manufactures that liquid silicone in the human body is potentially deadly, liquid silicone and silicone implants are still being used today.  Some common reported deadly consequences are listed below:

  • “Despite risk of death, some still get illicit silicone shots. Clara Tolentino was terrified when her 43 year old sister died after getting liquid silicone injections to add more shape to her buttocks.” “The New York City examiner’s office said the cause of death was silicone pulmonary embolism.   NEW YORK – ASSOCIATED  PRESS (AP) – January 11, 2010
  • “Consumer alert: illegal silicone injection results in death.”  COSMETIC MEDICINE/PLASTIC SURGERY NEWS - April 17, 2009. NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL of MEDICINE in January 2006 suggested the risk of silicone caused pneumonitis and respiratory failure in patients with illicit silicone injections.
  • “Man charged with murder in Ga. for silicone injection death.” ALBANY, GEORGIA – ASSOCIATED PRESS (AP)  - March 24, 2004
  • “Injected silicone suspected in third death.”  “ A third person has died from what police suspect is silicone injection, alarming investigators that many in the transgender community are not heeding warning dangers of such body enhancement techniques.  David Harold Reese Jr., 31, died Sunday at Memorial Herman Northwest hospital, two days after receiving silicone injections to his buttocks, said Houston police department homicide Lt. Steve Jett.”  -  HOUSTON CHRONICLE, August 21, 2003
  • “Miramar Fire Rescue arrived in minutes and rushed her to Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines.  It was too late - she stopped breathing before they arrived.  Doctors pronounced her dead in the emergency room at 11:30pm due to a massive embolism in the lung.  The cause: silicone leakage into the bloodstream.  Twenty-two days later, police arrested Mark Hawkins and charged him with third-degree murder, manslaughter, and practicing medicine without a license.   BROWARD – PALM BEACH NEWS TIMES, April 5, 2009
  • Washington, D.C. – Women who have breast implants are significantly more likely to die from Brain Tumors, Lung Cancer, other respiratory diseases, and suicide compared to other plastic surgery patients, according to a new comprehensive study. Implant patients were three (3) times as likely to die from Lung Cancer, Emphysema, and Pneumonia as other plastic surgery patients. The findings are statistically significant, which means that they are unlikely to have occurred by chance. The studies were completed on women with implants, but NOT RUPTURED implants only. EPIDEMIOLOGY - April 27, 2001
  •  “2 indicted in silicone injection deaths” – “the silicone often enters the blood-stream, however, and can penetrate the lungs causing severe illness and in some cases death.” ‘police  also were investigating the July 22 death of  San Chiem,35. Police said that Chiem died of respiratory failure at Spring Branch Medical Center two days after receiving silicone injections.’  HOUSTON CHRONICLE-Oct. 16, 2003                                                                                                        
   
  • NEVADA REVISED STATUTES: CHAPTER 202
         1 – ‘it is unlawful for a person to’ inject any liquid silicone substance into the human body; or Sell or offer for sale in the State any liquid silicone substance for the purpose of injection to the human body.
        
2 -  A person who violates the provisions of subsection 1 is guilty of a category  D felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130 – NRS 1975.
     
  • “What Really Killed the Beauty Queen”  - CNN Health – 12/10/2009 Dr. Guillermo Blugerman – When Solange Magnano requested silicone  Injections in 2009 “for a higher, firmer rear end” he turned her away. “I said this was not allowed to be done in Argentina”. Blugerman, the President ofthe Argentina Association of Medicine and Cosmetic Surgery  said he believes Magnano then went in search of someone who would give her the injections that she wanted. “She found someone else to do this with this forbidden material.” The former Ms. Argentina died November 29, reportedly of a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot, that blocks blood supply to the lungs.
