Responsible Entity Boston Scientific Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA) notified Boston Scientific of TGA’s decision to remove two transvaginally implanted Boston Scientific mesh products from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), effective January 4, 2018.

The TGA believes there is currently a lack of adequate scientific evidence for it to be satisfied that the risks to patients are outweighed by the benefits of these devices.

Further information can be found on the TGA website.

As a result Boston Scientific is recalling all Uphold LITE with Capio SLIM and Solyx Single Incision Sling System products from the Australian market.

No other Boston Scientific devices are affected by this recall.
