What Do You Want?

Jane Akre

I’ve been working with a very smart 29-year old web person (who unfortunately has to try to teach this old dog new tricks), but she understands web content and conveying a presence and is amazingly clever in her delivery, in fact, I’m jealous of her youth and brains.

So she says what do you want your readers to do?  Well I thought I’d ask you’all the same questions.

Let’s have the Top Three Actions the FDA should take concerning surgical mesh?

The Top Ten Actions if you could wave a magic wand and change the way the FDA works where it concerns the approval of medical devices, specifically synthetic surgical mesh.

I’ll start – How about anything permanently implanted in the body undergoes PMA, premarket approval including clinical trials of some duration.

Doesn’t that sound reasonable?

BTW- this petition from Change.org (here) that came to my attention might have some ideas.

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.
