      Good intentions

      Notice that despite the title the second goal is about how to use mesh. I imagine that the meeting might not even happen with the pandemic going on. Still, interesting to see what the current topics are.

      10:00 AM – 12:00 PM “But I Don’t Want Mesh” – Options for Hernia Repair Without Permanent Synthetic Mesh
      Session Chair: Shawn Tsuda, MD | Co-Chairs: Guy Voeller, MD & Janey Pratt, MD
      The science of hernia repair and implants continues to evolve, along with patient perception. Discover alternatives to permanent
      synthetic mesh including no mesh, biologics, absorbables, bioabsorbables, and patient-specific mesh choice.
      At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to:
      » Describe alternatives to permanent synthetic mesh in hernia repair.
      » Evaluate current data and guidelines for best practices in the use of mesh for hernia repair.
      » Employ new strategies to choose the best patient-specific implant for your hernia patients using best available evidence.

      I hope this means that more patients will be getting non mesh hernia repairs.
      Thank you for the update.
