Review of surgical procedures involving urogynaecological mesh

This publication presents information on surgical procedures involving urogynaecological tape or mesh, presented by financial year for the period April 2008 to March 2017.

Information provided

This report details urogynaecological surgery for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, using vaginal tape or mesh, in comparison to non-tape/mesh procedures for the same conditions.

Data is presented for Northern Ireland for patients who have undergone an operation relating to the insertion, repair or removal of vaginal tape or mesh. This review followed a similar methodology to that carried out in England by NHS Digital and therefore enabled a comparison of the surgery insertion and removal rates in NI with service delivery in England.
