WHEN WILL THE US BAN TRANSVAGINAL MESH?
June 20, 2014
One day after one of the country’s health boards voted to ban transvaginal mesh use in that country, Scotland’s Health Secretary Alex Neil has requested the use of mesh implants stop in Scotland until an investigation into mesh complications is conducted. About 1,500 women undergo transvaginal mesh implants in Scotland every year, reports BBC. See their story here. MeshMedicalDeviceNewsDesk
1,500 Women in Scotland to 300,000 annually in the United States and yet there’s no recall. Is it because Sheri Woodruff Johnson & Johnson spokesperson (the leader in transvaginal mesh) says that “many” view the mesh they still sell that causes bladder leaks as the “gold standard.”
Would Sheri Woodruff be implanted with her Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Gynecare product??
What about Bridget Ross who was an executive at Janssen then Ethicon’s Gynecare, would she have the mesh implanted?
