I write in response to your Official Information Act request, acknowledged by us on 21 June 2019. You noted the following, and requested information from us on trans-obturator tape (TOT) use during surgical procedures:
I am a lawyer at John Miller Law. We act for a woman in a case against ACC, regarding the use of trans-obturator tape (TOT) during a procedure she underwent in 2006. Our client tells me that this product has since been discontinued for use in the Counties Manukau DHB.
• I would like to know if this is correct.
•If so, please may I have any documents relating to the discontinuance of this product,and any advice on this product you believe to relevant?
Our response is attached
