1379 PIP breast implant ruptures have been reported to AFSSAPS between 2001 and January 2012. Of these PIP breast implants 55% ruptured within the first five years of implantation. AFSSPAS have stated that the early ruptures were as a result of PIP breast implant failure.
In addition to the reported PIP breast implant ruptures, 875 inflammatory reactions were reported to AFSSPAS and 73% of these were not associated with a rupture.
Furthermore, AFSSAPS have confirmed that they have ordered the routine removal of PIP breast implants for preventative reasons (as opposed to precautionary) and that the removal procedure was not urgent.
