British Association of Urological Surgeons to discuss Complications of Sling Surgery

The British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) is planning a session on the complications of sling surgery as part of its Annual Scientific Meeting in Glasgow on 25 – 28 June 2012.  Dr Susanne Ludgate of the MHRA will be discussing tapes for stress urinary incontinence.  Professor Chris Chapple from the Association’s Section of Female, Neurological & Urodynamic Urology thinks it will be a very interesting and topical session:

“In the afternoon, we are going to have a session focussing on the complications of sling surgery. Professor Ruud Bosch will consider complications and their management. We are delighted to welcome Dr Susanne Ludgate, senior director at the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), talking about the subject of devices and, in particular, about tapes used for stress incontinence. I believe this is going to be a very interesting session, particularly in view of the current publicity relating to breast and hip implants. Professor Paul Abrams will be chairing this session and he has been much involved in organising a working party to look at the complications of sling surgery and the way in which information should be communicated to our patients and our colleagues. Finally, I would like to thank Astellas Pharma Ltd for its continuing support of the Section.”
