Jane Akre

I’m Jane Akre, the News Editor at Mesh / Medical Device News Desk and I’m here to help and to put a face on the devastating injuries that women and men report to the FDA. Really.  I have found this to be an extraordinary story ever since I did the Suffering in Silence series more than two years ago for InjuryBoard.com

See it here:

Suffering in Silence- Part One;    Part Two;    Part Three;    Part Four 

Here’s my background from another website I run, Journalism Juice. I have more than 30 years in the news business and find the lack of regulation over these devices often used by the targeted baby boomer generation to be a major story especially since they are intended to be permanently implanted!

There is more followup on defective automobiles than medical devices which do not undergo premarket approval.
