Position Statement on Mesh Midurethral Slings for Stress Urinary Incontinence

The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS) and the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogential Reconstruction (SUFU) leaders have jointly developed a Position Statement on Mesh Midurethral Slings (MUS) for Stress Urinary Incontinence which has been approved by the boards of both societies. The statement reviews the use of the mid-urethral sling in the surgical management of stress urinary incontinence. This statement seeks to clarify the confusion that has resulted from the advertisements by lawyers recruiting women with transvaginal mesh placed for both prolapse and incontinence.
