1.1 Current evidence on the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic mesh pectopexy for apical prolapse of the uterus or vagina is insufficient in quality and quantity. Therefore, this procedure should only be used in the context of research. Find out what only in research means on the NICE interventional procedures guidance page.

1.2 The procedure should only be done by surgeons experienced and trained in laparoscopic urogynaecological surgery.

1.3 All adverse events involving the medical devices (including the mesh) used in this procedure should be reported to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.

1.4 Further research should include details of patient selection and long-term outcomes.
