 SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Mentor Corp.


(NASDAQ: MNTR) today announced that an advisory panel to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unanimously voted yesterday that silicone gel-filled breast implants should remain on the market while the agency gathers more data on the safety and efficacy of the products.
 The panel recommended that Mentor be allowed to continue to sell its devices, which are used in the reconstruction of breasts lost to cancer and surgery for breast augmentation, while the FDA evaluates additional data, including results from industry studies currently under way.
