About the Seprafilm Implant

Public Citizen, a consumer watch dog group, is calling for the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to recall Sanofi SA’s Seprafilm.

The group claims the surgical implant has been associated with multiple side effects and use of the implant can result in death.  Further, there have been several studies that show the implant is highly questionable when it comes to its effectiveness.

According to Reuters, Public Citizen sent the FDA a 39-page petition asking them to reevaluate and recall the implant.

There have been at least 21 reports linking the implants to death and up 524 reports of it leading to adverse events.
