Breast Implants Recall

Recall for Breast Implants

Dillon Solicitors are offering legal advices to women affected with breast implants recalled by the manufacturer Poly Implant Prothese (PIP).

The recall was necessitated after it was discovered that PIP had been using an unsuitable silicone gel instead of a medical-grade silicone gel.

It appears that the breast implants were implanted in the following Private Hospitals / Clinics: Shandon Street Hospital in Cork, Clane Hospital in Co Kildare, The Hospital Group (Dublin and Galway) and The Harley Medical Clinic in Dublin. The Irish Medical Board have advised that out of the 1,500 women in Ireland who have received the PIP breast implants, 878 of them are former patients of the Harley Medical Group.

All women with these implants are advised that if they have any concerns about their implants that they should seek advice from the surgeon who carried out the procedure as a matter of urgency.
Anyone concerned that they may have received the PIP implant should contact their surgeon/clinic where their surgery was carried out and obtain medical advices. They should request copies of all medical documents and have a scan carried out to ascertain the present state of the implants.

We understand that this matter is particularly upsetting and sensitive. We also understand that the thought of further surgery can be the cause of major distress in patients.

Our solicitors in Dillon Solicitors are available to provide you with legal advice on this matter and to discuss with you any claim you may have.
