  • Mesh – business versus medicine

    Posted by Good intentions on September 26, 2018 at 5:50 pm

    I just came across this video from 2011 and the first 1:30 minutes are very interesting. Business versus medicine. Device makers “selling” mesh. Doctors not allowed to talk publicly about specific products.

    Once business has invested time and money in to building a market, they will work very hard to keep it. The mesh market is a growing profitable market. North America is, apparently, the largest.

    In 2018, North America is projected to account for the largest market share

    The global hernia repair market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). In 2018, North America is estimated to account for the largest market for hernia mesh devices. The large share of North America in this market can be attributed to the strong demand for and adoption of hernia repair in the US, presence of a large pool of hernia patients, and an efficient and favorable healthcare system are supporting the growth of the hernia repair market in North America.

    The major players in the hernia repair market profiled in this report are Covidien ( Part of Medtronic) (Ireland), Ethicon (Part of Johnson & Johnson) (US), B. Braun (Germany), C.R. Bard (Part of Becton Dickinson) (US), W. L. Gore (US), LifeCell (Part of Allergan) (Ireland), Maquet (Part of Getinge) (Sweden), Cook Medical (US), Integra (US), DIPROMED (Italy), FEG (Germany), Cousin Biotech (France), Herniamesh (Italy), Aspide Medical (France), TransEasy Medical (China), and Via Surgical (Israel).

    [USER=”2662″]John Fortem[/USER] There is nothing nefarious here. The talks preceding the panel discussion are posted separately. It is the only meeting that openly posts all the surgical talks after their meeting for all non-members to view as well. Follow them on YouTube if you are interested. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV1x1G84AHRBOO4ysqa8Y8Q

    “Yeah… we got a couple minutes. If speakers can come up, we’ll take one or two questions and then we’ll have to end. We caught up for 20 minutes, so we did a pretty good job. Thank you speakers for doing such a good job keeping up.”

    Where is the rest of the video? Where are the first 13 minutes?

    Keeping up means following a strict program on what to say and not allowing time for questioning and reasoning. The only two questions they expect you to ask them is how much does it cost and when they can deliver.
