Vaginal implants: Report recommends recording complications

Vaginal implants: Report recommends recording complications An NHS England report on vaginal mesh implants has recommended better support and communication between patients and doctors over the devices.

The Mesh Oversight Group report also said complications caused by the implants should be recorded so that experts fully understood the risks.

Vaginal mesh implants are used to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

But some women said they left them in permanent pain and unable to walk.

The research - seen exclusively by the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme - aims to address concerns over the use of mesh devices. BBC News
