The most intensively studied medical devices - ever

"I think it's safe to say that these medical devices are the most intensively studied medical devices in medical history."

What was the person who said this talking about?

  The heart stent?

    The ventilator, perhaps?

      Or maybe the latex glove?

None of the above. According to Supriya Sharma of Health Canada's therapeutic products directorate, the silicon gel breast implant fits the above description. Canada is finally de-regulating the use of these well-researched devices after nixing their use in 1992.
