Belgian Registry Vaginal Mesh

Female genital prolapse is characterized by a portion of the vaginal canal protruding (prolapsing) the opening of the vagina. This can be treated by placing vaginal mesh devices via either the abdominal or vaginal way. The standard procedure is via the abdominal canal as this is generally associated with less side effects.

However, in specific conditions (anterior or apical prolapse), the vaginal procedure can be less risky than the abdominal procedure and should therefore be preferred.

The commission de remboursement des implants et des dispositifs medicaux invasifs (CRIDMI) of the RIZIV-INAMI recently decided to reimburse transvaginal mesh devices under the conditions mentioned in annex 2.

Registration of additional information via healthdata is part of the reimbursement conditions. 3 years after the start of the reimbursement, the implanting and rehabilitation centres will have to draft a report to the CRIDMI based on the registered data.
