Surgical Mesh Registry: Cost Benefit Analysis
The Ministry of Health commissioned Deloitte Access Economics to estimate the costs and benefits of setting up a register for surgical mesh. As well as patient follow up, registries can reduce the costs and adverse consequences of surgery. The main uses of surgical mesh are for hernia repair (mostly males) and pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
