Description

An operation to treat incontinence performed on tens of thousands of women across the UK could be hiding a scandal worse than Thalidomide, a leading expert has warned.Professor Carl Heneghan, who specialises in evidence-based medicine, said some of the devices used in vaginal mesh implants had not been clinically tested and, "unlike in the Thalidomide scandal, you are unable to see the extent of the women's injuries".Speaking about the scale of the scandal, he said: "I think this is the worst one that we'll ever see in my lifetime because of the scale of the number of women affected."SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel for more videos: http://www.youtube.com/skynews Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/skynews and https://twitter.com/skynewsbreak Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/skynews For more content go to http://news.sky.com and download our apps:iPad https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/Sky-N... iPhone https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/sky-n...
