Position Statement on TGA Special Access Scheme

>>Position Statement on TGA Special Access Scheme

BreastSurgANZ Council has approved the following Position Statement:

“The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) Special Access Scheme is intended for use in ‘exceptional clinical circumstances’.

BreastSurgANZ considers that it is not appropriate to access any breast implants that have been suspended by the TGA, as no ‘exceptional clinical circumstances’ apply for their use in Australia, given other available treatment options. 

BreastSurgANZ does not condone its breast surgeon members applying to the TGA for special access for any TGA suspended implants.“
