Venezuela offers free removal of faulty breast implants

first_img Share Share Tweet Sharing is caring! HealthLifestyle Venezuela offers free removal of faulty breast implants by: – December 28, 2011center_img Share 18 Views   no discussions Venezuelan Vera Aulestia is among women who had PIP implantsVenezuela’s government has offered to pay for the removal of breast implants feared to be at risk of rupture. The authorities would cover the cost of the surgery for Venezuelan women but would not pay for replacement implants, Health Minister Eugenia Sader said. Ms Sader said many implants made by French firm Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) had been imported illegally. The French authorities have recommended that 30,000 French women have the PIP implants removed as a precaution.The French government, which stresses that there is no evidence of a cancer link, has said it will cover the cost. The implants were banned in several countries last year after they were found to contain industrial grade silicone filler, making them more liable to split. The French authorities have opened a criminal investigation into the company which went into administration in 2010. Global marketMs Sader said that patients who were worried could go to hospital for a check-up and have surgery to remove the implants if they wished. The Venezuelan government would not, however, pay for new implants, the state news agency AVN quoted her as saying. The health minister said that a significant number of PIP implants had been brought into Venezuela without the proper authorisation.“They were implanted illegally and now those patients are at risk,” she said. Breast augmentation surgery is popular in Venezuela, where implants are sometimes given to girls as a 15th birthday present.More than 300,000 implants are believed to have been sold globally by PIP over the past 12 years in some 65 countries. More than half of its exports went to South America. In Brazil, some 25,000 women are believed to have had PIP implants. In Argentina, a group of some 50 women have said they will sue their plastic surgeons if they do not get free replacement for their PIP implants. Western Europe was another major market. Spain, Italy, Germany and Ukraine are known to have imported PIP silicon sacs.It is thought some 40,000 British women have the implants.BBC Newslast_img read more

They have experience in the centre defence,” observed the Nigerian gaffer in his preview of tonight’s game in Cairo.He however admitted that Nigeria’s win over Cameroon has sort of bolstered his team ahead of the quarter final game with South Africa.”We had a good game against Cameroon. We also have confidence so we should expect a match of high quality.”The strength of our team is humility and the right fighting spirit. Against South Africa tonight, it won’t be easy.”But we also have confidence because we scored three goals against a team who did not concede a goal in the group stage and who had a very good goalkeeper.”We are confident also but for me, South Africa is the favourite,” Rohr stressed in the bid to make the warriors from Mandela’s country to let down their guard.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Super Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr appeared to be playing mind game when he declared that Nigeria’s quarter-final opponents tonight, South Africa, are the favourites to advance into the semi final stage of the competition.The Franco/German tactician however promised a cracker at the Cairo International Stadium tonight because he believes the two teams have been boosted by the results of their last round of matches before the clash today.”When you beat Egypt in this circumstance with one of the best players in Africa, you will be full of confidence and they deserved to win.

No. 19 Wisconsin looks to extend win streak to seven against No. 7 Michigan

first_imgJan. 19 was a huge day for the University of Wisconsin Men’s Basketball Team (17-6, 9-3 Big Ten). At the time, conference rival Michigan (21-2, 10-2) was ranked No. 2 in the nation, but a 26-point outing from Ethan Happ dethroned the Wolverines. The upset marked a major turning point in Wisconsin’s season, sparking a six-game winning streak that has seen the Badgers jump back in the AP Top 25 and move up to No. 19 in the country.But that game was in the Kohl Center. When Head Coach Greg Gard and company head to Ann Arbor, Michigan, Saturday, they’ll be facing a now No. 7 Michigan team looking for vengeance.The Badgers have already proved their slowed-down, grind-it-out playing style can disrupt Michigan’s offensive rhythm. The Wolverines — usually consistent from three-point land — were held to just a 27.8 percent clip from downtown Jan. 19. If Wisconsin wants to take them down on the road, they will need to employ similar defensive tactics, especially on freshman forward Ignas Brazdeikis.Men’s basketball: No. 19 Badgers silence Golden Gophers in MinneapolisThe No. 19 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers (16-7, 6-6 Big Ten) 56–51 in Read…Many predicted that it may take Brazdeikis a year or two to produce at the college level, but thus far, he has proved his doubters wrong. Averaging over 15 points and five rebounds per game, he has become a force to be reckoned with as the leading scorer on a well-rounded, well-coached Wolverine offense. And though the Badgers held him to his only scoreless outing a few weeks ago, he mustn’t be taken for granted. Defenders like Khalil Iverson, Aleem Ford and Nate Reuvers will all have to constantly keep a hand in his face to slow down the 40 percent three-point shooter.Another man Wisconsin will need to key in on is Jordan Poole, a Milwaukee-native. Poole has been hitting big shots his whole career, and like Brazdeikis, is a 40 percent-plus three-point shooter who can pull up from anywhere. His confidence and overall swagger are unparalleled in the Big Ten. Coming off three straight games with at least three three-pointers, UW can expect him to have the green light Saturday.Other big names for Michigan include Charles Matthews, a physical guard who loves to bully his way to the basket, and Zavier Simpson, who leads the team in assists at six per night.While Wisconsin does match up pretty well with the Wolverines, there’s one spot on the floor in particular where Bucky has a distinct advantage — the center position.We know all about Happ’s unique abilities, but while Michigan center Jon Teske is no slouch, he’s also not an All-American. Even at 7-foot-1, Teske likely won’t be able to keep up with Happ’s footwork or post moves. Their first matchup was arguably Happ’s best game of the season, finishing with 26 points, nine rebounds and six assists. He’ll be the focal point of the Badger offense per usual, but he can’t be the only source of offense if they want to pull off another signature victory.Women’s basketball: Badgers seek victory on road versus IllinoisLooking to get back into the win column, the University of Wisconsin Women’s Basketball team (11-12, 2-7 Big Ten) eyes Read…In addition to Happ, Wisconsin will need others to step up shooting-wise, most notably Brad Davison and D’Mitrik Trice. They will be going toe-to-toe with Michigan’s duo of Poole and Simpson, so big performances are crucial from the Badger backcourt.Going on the road is never easy, especially when playing at the Crisler Center. To win, Wisconsin will need to play good team basketball and keep their hands in the faces of Michigan’s shooters. A victory on the road versus a top-10 team would be yet another pivotal moment in Wisconsin’s season and would arguably cement their case as one of college basketball’s finest teams.Tip-off is set for 11 a.m. Saturday morning from the Crisler Center. The matchup can be seen live on FOX or heard on the Badger Radio Network.last_img read more
