IMPLANTS
Continued from page 1
brought up."
However, the hospital has con-
tinued to use saline implants -
which have silicone jackets
surrounding saline solution.
Harrison said the number of such
implants have dropped because of
the difficulty in obtaining the saline.
"Manufacturers can't keep up
with the numbers of people
demanding saline," Harrison said.
Wilkins said the saline implants
were not guaranteed to be safer than
the silicone-gel implants. "Even the
:saline might have some of those
;!rawbacks," he said. "That issue has
not really been raised in the press."
The FDA will examine saline
implants next year.
Wilkins said the transverse rectus
abdominis musculocutaneous
(TRAM) flap, a form of surgery re-
moving a flap of stomach muscle

into the chest area, was "preferred
standard of procedure," but was not
a viable option for all patients.
The TRAM flap is used mostly
for breast reconstruction after mas-
tectomy due to breast cancer.
Wilkins said the operation could
take up to eight hours and is not an
option for cosmetic and augmenta-
tion purposes.
Wilkins said using saline pro-
duced similar results to silicone-gel
for cosmetic and augmentation pur-
poses.
But for reconstructive surgery
after mastectomy or to replace sili-
cone-gel implants, Wilkins said the
result was "not as good and not as
natural in contour and texture," since
saline was made for cosmetic
surgery purposes.
Regarding the implant contro-
versy, Wilkins said patients con-
sidering implants receive FDA re-
ports and transcripts and articles on
the pros and cons of implants.

Study addresses lack of women doctorates

by Karen Pier
Daily Graduate Schools Reporter
Although women make up more
than 50 percent of the population,
they only receive 18 percent of math
and physics Ph.D.s nationally, even
though an equal number of men and
women obtain undergraduate de-
grees in these subjects, according to
a recent study conducted by the
Alfred Sloan Foundation.
The foundation studied the
University mathematics and physics
departments, "to fill out what is
known about the experiences of
women and men in mathematics and
science programs at a major research
university."
At the University, seven of the 18
Ph.D. candidates expected to gradu-
ate this year are women - nearly 40
percent. Mathematics Chair Donald

Lewis said, "We recruited some very,
bright women."
The mathematics department is
also "trying a whole mess of things
in the next few years," Lewis said.
Physics Chair Homer Neal said
there are several women Ph.D. can-
didates, and four female faculty
members in his department.
However, he acknowledged there
is still work to be done in this area.
"We are making very significant
progress, but we still have a ways to
go," he said.
Carol Hollenshead, director of
the Center of Education for Women,
also said plans are under way to
change to help support women in
mathematics and science.
The study found the actual num-
ber of all degrees awarded in science
and math is decreasing, but women

are getting more of a piece of the
pie.
The percentage of women getting
degrees is small, but the proportion
of women to males getting doctor-
ates in mathematics, science and en-
gineering is improving, according to
the National Research Council
Survey of Earned Doctorates.
Lewis said some women do not
continue in graduate studies due to
the lack of jobs. "Other studies have
shown when women become em-
ployable, women will stop their
studies and get a job ... They'll get a
job and do very well, but they stop
themselves from reaching their full
potential," Lewis said.
According to the study, women
also report being patronized or

ignored in the classroom.
Lewis said "professors who re-
ally take an interest" can help under-
graduates decide to go to graduate
study. -
The study listed a number of
ideas to help women in their pursuit
in mathematics and sciences -- in-
cluding calling on professors to en-
courage women students, since this
praise seems to be a key in keeping
women in their pursuit of a graduate
degree.
The study also said women see
mathematics as something done ac-
cording to rules and tend not to seek
alternative methods; the study ad-
vised that mathematics classes
should more strongly emphasize
innovative thinking.
