Transvaginal Mesh FDA Advisory
In October 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a health advisory to patients and health practitioners about serious complications with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. According to the FDA, the agency has received more than 1,000 reports from nine different surgical mesh manufacturers of complications associated with surgical mesh devices over the last three years.
The transvaginal mesh complications most commonly reported to the FDA include erosion through the vaginal epithelium, infection, pain, urinary problems, and recurrence of vaginal prolapse and/or incontinence. Additional complications, such as bowel, bladder and blood vessel perforation, may occur during insertion of the surgical mesh.
