One last thing that I realized – if the authors’ conclusions are accepted, then the chronic pain portions of the European Hernia Society Guidelines are based on flawed data. The authors excluded contemporary studies, meaning that they focused on the types of studies that the EHS used to create the Guidelines.
So, rather than no-change, maybe they will invalidate the Guidelines completely. Or strip out all of the chronic pain conclusions and go back to recurrence only as the measure for recommendation.
Hard to see anything good for patient welfare resulting from what’s going on in the industry. Except the refinement of robotics methods for mesh removal.
