The Implant Files
Right as 2018 drew to a close, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published a new exposé: The Implant Files.
250 reporters from all over the world pooled their resources to study about 8 million documents regarding medical devices like hip prosthetics, breast implants, and vaginal mesh implants. The resulting conclusions didn’t pull any punches regarding the safety risks associated with medical implants, and the medical implants industry’s failure to monitor this. Dutch media organizations Radar and Trouw were especially important to the investigation.
