WASHINGTON (Reuters Health) - A new brochure published by the
US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about breast implantation
has been made available to women considering the procedure. ``This
handbook contains the latest information about breast implants
to assist (women) in making an informed decision about whether
or not to have breast implants,'' the FDA says. The brochure,
entitled ``Breast Implants--An Information Update--2000,'' is
a revised version of the agency's consumer handbook on the subject. Topics
covered in the brochure include the different types of breast
implants that are available and their potential risks, answers
to the most frequently asked questions, reporting of serious
problems, and breast implant resource groups.
