Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers the requirements for single use saline inflatable, smooth and textured silicone shell implantable breast prostheses, intended for use in surgical reconstruction, augmentation, or replacement of the breast. This specification does not cover custom fabricated implantable breast prostheses and other gel-saline type implants. The silicone elastomer compositions for use as primary material of construction of the shell including the exterior (tissue contact) surface shall include: (1) polymer types MQ or VMQ, (2) fillers A, B, or C, (3) additive J (for radiopacity), and (4) catalysts B, G, J, or K. The requirements for the following are specified: (1) fabrication including vulcanization and postcure, (2) volume and dimension of saline filled prostheses, (3) fixation sites, and (4) orientation means. The following tests shall be performed: (1) physical property tests such as shell leakage and tension tests (2) biocompatibility test, (3) shell rupture or failure test, (4) valve competence, and (5) abrasion test. The physical property requirements are specified for (1) shell percent elongation, breaking strength, and tensile set, and (2) critical and non-critical fused or adhered joints. Illustrations for testing fused or adhered joints are provided. Requirements for sterilization, packaging, labeling, and package inserts are detailed as well.
1.1 This specification covers the requirements for single use saline inflatable, smooth and textured silicone shell implantable breast prostheses, intended for use in surgical reconstruction, augmentation, or replacement of the breast.
1.2.1 This specification does not cover custom fabricated implantable breast prostheses.
1.2.2 This specification does not cover gel/saline type implants, which are within the scope of Specification .
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
