Urgent Review on TVT, TVT-Secur, TVTO & TOT Medical Devices including Synthetic Flat Graft Surgical Mesh
Target:The Prime Minister Rt Hon David Cameron MP and Health Secretary Andrew Lansley MP
Commenced:23 January 2011
Sponsored by:TVT Messed up Mesh (TVT Mum)

We want the TVT, TVT-O and TOT medical devices and mesh grafts for hernia repairs, stress incontinence, prolapse, bladder and bowel disorders to be stopped and taken off the market.

Article: Serious Concerns with our Surgeons in the UK and the Lax Support from the Governing Bodies NICE and the MHRA

An urgent review is required on the medical devices TVT, TVTO, TOT and the use of mesh graft for hernia repair surgery plus the Governing Bodies NICE and the MHRA who regulate these medical devices.

Document PDF: www.tvt-messed-up-mesh.org.uk/pdfs/serious_concerns.pdf

The polypropylene surgical synthetic mesh used in the medical devices is the source of the problem and we want this surgery stopped. Many people around the UK are finding it extremely difficult to contact an experienced surgeon to treat mesh related complications and unfortunately many inexperienced surgeons are going ahead with what appears to be guess work surgery and making matters worse for their patients.

It is unbelievable to realize that one piece of mesh can cause such devastation not only to our health but it has also affected our quality of life. There are people who have lost their homes, careers, marriages, family and friends.

The greedy practices of the pharmaceutical companies, the un-educated on these medical devices, egos getting in the way of good surgical practice and also through ignorance from our governing bodies they have allowed these products to be used and it still continues today.

This petition is not just for sufferers to sign, we need everyone to sign it, as one lady said to me "the whole globe should be signing it" Please make her wish come true she is in so much pain and discomfort at this time along with many thousands of people.

Helpful advice for signing the Petition
Signing Online:We do not hold peoples addresses when signing the petition, plus you can use a partial address ie: no house number if you prefer. Unfortunately you cannot use the same computer to sign multiple signatures, you can only use one individual computer as your IP address will be logged and will only accept one signature. We suggest you use another computer for your family and friends to sign, ie: library, workplace if allowed, own personal computer. Thank you for showing you care and for signing the petition.
