European Hernia Society Manchester 2022
Here is the program for the EHS’s upcoming meeting. Some parallels to the AHS meeting, similar names, similar topics.
Overall I get the impression of professionals milling about talking about concerns then working to find ways to keep doing what they do. The EHS web site is plastered with mesh producer logos. The program is filled with mesh producer names. It’s very hard to imagine anyone stepping up and even asking if they are using too much mesh.
But reality still seems to be impinging. there is a topic about introducing a “hernia registry”. And talks about legal issues. And talks about why mesh is a public concern. “Why is mesh on TV?” is a topic.
Chronic pain is a topic but I did not see anything at all about pure tissue repair. I might have missed it.
