Members of the Scottish Parliament’s petition committee recently received evidence from an American lawyer, which included the comparison of transvaginal mesh devices to asbestos. The BBC quoted the lawyer as saying that asbestos was once considered “to be a wonderful invention for a long time and now everybody in the world knows it’s something you wouldn’t want to go near”.
In the lawyer’s analogy, vaginal mesh can now be held in the same light.
The Scottish Parliament’s committee is currently deliberating on whether to discontinue the use of transvaginal mesh. In 2014, the Scottish health secretary at the time, Alex Neil, expressed his belief in terminating use of transvaginal mesh.
As the committee has not issued a final ruling on the matter, transvaginal mesh operations are still being carried out in the country.
