    Between April 2008 to March 2017, procedure data from the UK NHS confirmed that 100,516 patients had a mid-urethral tape procedure, while only 1195 patients had a non-tape SUI procedure. Although the 2013 national guideline from The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended that tape and non-tape SUI procedures be offered equally, 84 mesh tape procedures were performed for every 1 non-tape procedure over the 10-year period. Hundreds of patients recently engaged in litigation on the basis of lack of informed consent, particularly in offering alternatives to the mesh tape option. Little is known, however, about how patients choose among different treatment options for SUI and there are no validated patient decision aids (PDAs) in this context. PDAs have been shown to increase patient knowledge, clarity about their own values and accuracy of risk perceptions regarding various management options. Women considering SUI surgery require up-to-date information on all common and available surgical procedures as well as support in their decision-making, tailored to their values and needs. Agur et al. on behalf of the NHS Ayrshire & Arran Continence Multidisciplinary Team designed and developed a novel SUI surgery patient decision aid (SUI-PDA) to help women in making a choice of treatment based on their own individual values. This study reports the development and validation of SUI-PDA as well as the initial evaluation of its usefulness in clinical practice for women considering SUI surgery.

    The Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ) supports recommendations in the Hearing and Responding to Stories of Survivors of Surgical Mesh report released by the New Zealand Ministry of Health in response to complications resulting from the use of surgical mesh in a range of operations, including for stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The Ministry of Health commissioned the review, in which New Zealand urologists participated alongside a wide range of consumer and other health groups, to provide a plan “to minimize future risk to consumers and support those harmed by it”. “The Urological Society acknowledges that complications from the use of mesh for treating stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse has caused considerable physical and psychological harm in some patients, which we feel is unacceptable, said USANZ President, Dr Stephen Mark. "We also acknowledge and accept findings that there were deficiencies in technical and communication skills of some surgeons. We recognise the distress caused to these patients and want to be part of the solution in helping these people, as well as ensuring no patients are harmed in future." “Further research is necessary to achieve best practice outcomes and help us understand why, when, and in which patient complications may occur. For this reason, USANZ supports participation with Australia in a mesh registry. By collaborating with Australian researchers, we can be part of a substantial database that would underpin ongoing research in the interests of patient safety."
