BSUG Audit and Database Committee have published a 2nd National Report21st October 2020
The BSUG Audit and Database Committee have published a 2nd National Report on Continence Surgery in the UK (2018-2019) which can be found here.
There has been a significant increase in the number of autologous fascial sling (AFS), colposuspension (open and laparoscopic) and bladder neck injection (BNI) procedures undertaken, so much so that the number of non-mesh operations recorded on the BSUG Database in the last 2 years exceed that of the previous 10 years.
Perhaps as expected more patients are having fascial slings for primary (rather than recurrent) incontinence. Approximately two thirds of patients had a BNI injection with only 56% reporting that they were “much better” or “very much better” at follow up.
