Hello ijk-ga,

An article on breast implants traces the history of Heyer-Schulte:

"Heyer-Schulte began to manufacture gel implants in 1971.  In 1974,
they were
acquired by American Hospital Supply.  The Heyer-Schulte division of
that company was acquired by Mentor in 1984.  In 1985, American
Hospital Supply Corporation was merged into Baxter Healthcare
Corporation.  Although Baxter never manufactured breast implants, they
became legally responsible for many of the earlier Heyer-Schulte
implants because of their acquisition of the American Hospital Supply

"Current status of breast implant survival properties and the
management of the woman with silicone gel breast implants." (Can J
Plast Surg 2000;8(2):54-67), at 58 [page 5 of PDF file]
The Canadian Society for Aesthetic Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Mentor Corporation mentions part of this history on its web site:

Mentor Corporation

Baxter Healthcare Corporation's web site mentions the other relevant

"Baxter to Focus on Next-Generation Oxygen-Carrying Therapeutics;
Decision Will End Clinical Development of First-Generation Program"
(September 16, 1998)
Baxter Healthcare Corporation

Here is the contact information for Mentor and Baxter Healthcare.

"Corporate Offices"
Mentor Corporation

"Customer Service and Contacts"
Baxter Healthcare Corporation

I hope that this information is helpful.  (Please note: I did not see
the word "Tumen" in conjunction with Heyer-Schulte or breast implants.
 If for some reason this word is relevant, and would lead to a
different answer, please let me know in a request for clarification.)
