Coloplast Teams Up with Dr. Arturo Manchaca for a study that will IMPLANT MESH in NEW WOMEN

IMPORTANT FOLLOW UP TO TODAY’S POST regarding Coloplast and Dr. Arturo Menchaca of Paris Community Hospital, Paris, Illinois. If you have a Coloplast device, and/or you see your doctor in the list below, contact your state Attorney General IMMEDIATELY. It’s best to do so in writing, but if you are too ill, a call will suffice. Tell your State AG that you do not want this study to be conducted in your state on the basis of deceptive trade practices. Your state may already be pursuing civil action (as is Texas), but now is a GREAT time to remind your state’s AG Office of the responsibility they bear to keep the citizens of YOUR STATE safe. See example from the Texas AG filing against #JnJ on a former blog post here:

The Mesh Warrior ℠

Hello Warriors;

This post may be more important than any post I’ve ever written.

Coloplast is teaming up with a doctor in Illinois, Dr. Arturo Manchaca of Paris Community Hospital and Family Medical Center for a NEW STUDY that would implant Coloplast’s Restorelle Direct Fix in NEW PATIENTS who suffer from POP. A call has been put out for participation of 900 women WHO HAVE NOT HAD SURGERY FOR REPAIR OF POP yet. The study aims to follow women over a three year period. Some women will receive the Coloplast Restorelle Implant. Others will undergo an organic procedure that does not use mesh.

Dr. Manchaca’s clinic is centrally-located in the Midwest in a small city called Paris, Illinois, about 165 miles south of Chicago and 100 miles from Indianapolis. The city is a small town of about 8,800 residents, according to Wikipedia. Seems like a rather small clinic to play…
