How the surgeons are influenced – trade journals.
I just browsed through the latest issue of General Surgery News and was struck by how much it is like a typical trade journal. Advertisements and articles promoting products. Two big mesh ads for Strattice and TelaBio are in it. The Strattice ad is especially commercial in that it offers a free replacement mesh for any mesh that is explanted. Like those old TV ads that sold bad products with a two for one replacement if the first one was defective. Lifetime supply of bad product. Just reading the ads and looking at the copy will make you kind of queasy.
Here is the Strattice web site if you can’t read the text in the ad. Free replacement if product is bad. What a deal.
