Summary
Brief summary
Transvaginal mesh for pelvic organ prolapse was approved for use in Australia in 2005. Since then, there have been complications and complaints which culminated in a Senate Inquiry. The Senate Inquiry reported back in March 2018. From January 2018, transvaginal prolapse mesh was withdrawan from use by the TGA in Australia. Mesh slings for urinary stress incontinence are still available in Australia.

Following the Senate Inquiry, the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) provided information for consumers on treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse and urinary stress incontinence, guidance documents for care pathways and guidance documents for credentialing of specialists for mesh implant and removal.

The ACSQHC guidance document on mesh implant removal (attached) also recommended monitoring patient outcomes following surgical removal of mesh. Women with mesh complications, who elect and are suitable for mesh removal, will have a questionnaires (see attached) completed pre-operatively and at follow up visits. The questionnaires include symptomatology and visual analogue scores for pain.

The aims of this study are to review our surgical transvaginal mesh removal outcomes in women who have had substantial mesh removed (retrospectively and prospectively) and review our surgical techniques.
