Carl Heneghan is Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford and has been analysing evidence used for approval of the riskiest medical devices – those implanted in the body.

Metal, hips, breast implants, mesh, sterilisation implants have created considerable harm and have been made available often with little, or no, evidence. How can this be? It’s because current regulation permits it.

Carl has worked undercover with the Telegraph and Dutch TV to test approval, with the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire show he highlighted failings in the Essure implant, he is an All Parliamentary Mesh group member calling for a ban on mesh and with the BMJ and Panorama he is working on the failing device regulation system.

If you are interested in how you can turn a tangerine net into a viable implantable mesh device product then this skeptics talk is for you.
