I hope Noreen Wideman has the time to comment on the Canadian Government’s response to the Petition she initiated regarding Synthetic Mesh Implants that was presented to the House of Commons by Martin Shields (MP Bow River) in 2018.
Her petition also included a request to “establish a patient registry for all implantable devices to enable long term follow-up and surveillance”. I assume she is still pursuing this because I do not believe one exists in Canada this time.
She certainly is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated person who is doing what she can to improve patient safety.
This was a very interesting talk!
@drtowfigh what is your first line of care with patients with allergies and/ or urticaria? I happen to have both and while not debilitating but only annoying I would consider myself not a candidate for mesh repair or any implant in general…
