Cornell University did canine research in the 80's and concluded that mesh was not a good idea.<quoted text> Oh, I found it. I did not see the exact one I needed but it is nice to know they are there. Atrium never did human pre clinical trials. The used rabbits, pics and rats for the CQUR mesh. My husband and a few others are the human trials and those all failed.
I don't know if this is a new website for you, but try these links if you haven't found them already. The MAUDE Adverse Events Site is kind of confusing, but every once in a while you stumble upon something. It's part of the FDA website. There's a little line that says, " repeat the search with the omitted results included ". Try clicking on that too.
Try Googling this " POST HERNIORRHAPHY PAIN SYNDROME.doc " and see if you find anything useful.
Like I said before, I hope I'm not wasting your time but I don't know what paths you've travelled on this journey. Hope some of this helps.
