Mesh Medical Device News Desk, December 11, 2017~ It certainly is one of the most creative ways to tell the story of transvaginal mesh. Words written by Sling the Mesh founder, Kath Sansom. See it here.
See one of the most effective social media tools ever – Cambridgeshire artist, Michelle Deyna-Hayward illustrates while Sling the Mesh Kath Sansom’s words effectively tell the story in this chilling children’s tale as to how the women’s health disaster of transvaginal mesh happened.
Camb Times reports on the effort here.
In this six minute storybook, the artists tells the tale of how the rest of the world follows the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s lead in requiring no clinical trial clearance for market, unlike the stricter requirements for drugs.
Fast-track is how the FDA’s approval system for medical devices is known, the 510(k) approval process.
“Substantial equivalence” is all that is required for a manufacturer to gain clearance to market- that, a few thousand dollars, and an exchange of paperwork.
No wonder artist Deyna-Hayward illustrates women to look like a guinea pig.
Please enjoy this creative storytelling tool.
