Synthetic Vaginal Mesh Mid-urethral Tape Procedure for the Surgical Treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence in Women

This Booklet gives detailed information about the synthetic mid-urethral sling procedure.

About this booklet:

This booklet gives you detailed information about the operation being proposed and its alternatives. It includes advice from Scottish consensus panels, the relevant national organisations and other evidence-based sources, for example the Cochrane Collaboration, National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence. It is, therefore, a reflection of best practice in Scotland. The information is intended to supplement any advice you may already have been given by your GP or surgeon.

Please take your time to read it carefully, write down any questions and expectations (see here and here) to discuss with your surgeon prior to signing the consent form.
