It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago when the issue of polypropylene mesh used for surgery was known by a few people. Truth in Medicine was probably the first website devoted to mesh injuries. Mesh Medical Device News Desk (Mesh News Desk) came along in the summer of 2011.

Today there has been an explosion of news and information website  springing up around the world. No doubt thee are more but if you are a particular region or interested in one particular subject, here is a partial list.

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.
