    The topics look interesting. Scroll down the page, link below, and you’ll see the sponsors. The top three, “Gold” level, sponsors are major mesh suppliers. The other mesh makers are sponsoring at lower levels.

    One of the topics is new device regulations. I have not heard of any new ones, in Europe or anywhere else. Does anyone know of some?
    “Impact of new medical device regulations”

    Mesh invention and profitable industry interrupted tissue repair evolution.

    Perhaps we must invent a “patentable” expensive suture material specific for hernia repair for tissue repair to continue evolution.

    Too much emphasis on minimally invasive and robotics and devices have a topic, as expected. Tissue repairs seem against Nomenklatura as usual.

    I haven’t heard of any new regulations, but this area needs strict regulations after the scandal revealed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. How can people trust a mesh under this environment.

    Congresses are highly welcome, but unlikely to change the status quo.
