London: The gel materials used in PIP breast implant are not toxic or carciogenic and do not present a long-term health risk to women, according to a new research.However, they do remain twice as likely as other forms of implants to rupture.The analysis, by the NHS Medical Directors expert group, is likely to be a welcome relief for an estimated 47,000 women who are believed to have been given the implants, manufactured by French company Poly Implant Prothese (PIP).They were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses and have been linked to rupture and swelling in the body.The latest data from the Department of Health showed that almost 750 women are to have the implants removed on the NHS - 490 of whom had their PIP implants put in at private clinics.Others are believed to have had their implants removed privately.The NHS Medical Directors expert group, led by NHS medical director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, has now found the materials used in them are not toxic or carciogenic.
