Vitek a company which in then in the 1980s changed my life and turned it upside down on my head.

Vitek Proplast intro-positional TMJ (jaw) Implant
- Closing in 30 years of living with the results of failed medical (IPI ) Vitek Proplast implants (Jaw joint Implants) I have spent the better part of the last 15 years looking for other victims. Victims who like myself are still surviving the toxicity of the materials the implants were made from and that our bodies are rejecting.
We are an island of our own. It has become painfully obvious that to learn anything about our own prognosis we are going to have to gather the data and information ourselves. The medical industry is reluctanct to speak to us about anything related to the USA – FDA Recalled Failed Medical Implants.
It has been almost 30 yrs for me. I still do not have a clear prognosis albeit I have been given several overlapping diagnosis.
There are many reasons for this post and the main reasons I created Full Circled Me. I know that we need to gather & communicate with those of us who are also surviving the Vitek Proplast Implant medical disaster. We are living a medical nightmare.
If we do not begin as a community we are going to lose even the raw data. I am not being dramatic.
This is a living disaster and I am willing to go out on a limb here and say to you that less than 10% of the population in the USA knows about this disaster. I am being very generous. The number of breast implant victims pales us in comparison. Patients own family members don’t know. Our hope and desires is to spread the word we are here. We would hope anyone who has any kind of involvement regarding these implants, TMJ, or even other failed medical implants find their way here.
