This is a replay for William from Oceanic’s Topic.
I think that many surgeons got roped in to the Guidelines effort without realizing what was actually happening. It seemed like a good idea to create a baseline of methods, at least to use for future reference. But the failure to follow-up on the promises to update the document, and the constant and growing problem with mesh-related pain, has probably made many of them question their association with the document. Dr. Campanelli and Dr. Conze are not shown as members of the new Collaboration group.
The Collaboration and some or all of the members were shown in a recent publication about the fairly new Scrotal Inguinal Hernia guidelines. Post #34383 in my other thread. The Journal of Abdominal Wall Surgery (JAWS, ha ha ha) is the official publication of the European Hernia Society. You can see how powerful the EHS is getting.
