Halt on Use of Surgical Mesh for SUI

BAUS is aware of the “period of high vigilance restriction” regarding vaginal mesh surgery that has now been recommended by the Cumberlege review, mirrored on the UK Parliament website.

We welcome any recommendations that will help establish the nature and extent of complications suffered by women undergoing these types of surgery. Furthermore, we are keen to support the implementation of processes that will ensure existing patients with complications from mesh surgery are given the opportunity to be managed in centres with the required levels of experience, expertise and resources: click here to access information on this website about these centres.

BAUS is currently engaging with NHS England, the Department of Health & Social Care and the Cumberlege review team, via our relevant section leads, to ensure that all conditions set out by the review are met before the lifting of this period of temporary suspension.
