Foundation for an Evidence Informed Algorithm for Treating Pelvic Floor Mesh Complications: A Review

Mark Slack, Geoffrey W. Cundiff, Jacobus A van Rensburg, David J. Quinlan
To address evidence gaps on the management of complications related to mesh in pelvic floor surgery, we created an evidence-based algorithm, including defining evidence gaps. We utilized the Delphi Method within a panel of surgeons treating mesh complications to define a treatment strategy. The first round provided a list of clinically based postulates that informed a review, which expanded postulates to recommendations, including grading of the quality of evidence. A second round informed the final algorithm. While the quality of evidence is low, the available evidence provides a framework for planning diagnosis and management of mesh related complications.
