Mentor Breast Implants
RHE is investigating a possible class action lawsuit on behalf of all Canadian women who have been affected by silicone or saline breast implants manufactured by Mentor Worldwide LLC, a division of Johnson & Johnson.
The Mentor implants are said to cause Breast Implant Illness, an autoimmune disease, with symptoms which include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Cognitive dysfunction;
- Skin rashes;
- Chronic fatigue;
- Abnormal thyroid levels;
- Irregular heart rate;
- Gastrointestinal or digestive issues;
- Blood clots;
- Joint and muscle pain;
- Hair loss.
In addition, a safety review was initiated by Health Canada and released to the public on November 27, 2017. Although the incidence is low, Health Canada determined that there is a risk of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) occurring in women who have breast implants, including products by Mentor.
