Canada Warning Women of Risks from Transvaginal Mesh Implant

May 15, 2014

Canadian health officials are in the process of reviewing whether or not women in that country are being warned about the risks associated with the transvaginal mesh implant. The review comes based on the fact that several women have reported experiencing problems after receiving the mesh implant. These problems include but are not limited to pelvic organ prolapsed (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). All of the complaints involve similar allegations that vaginal mesh and bladder slings are defective and unreasonably dangerous, claiming that manufacturers knew or should have known about the health risks with transvaginal mesh.

Unfortunately, women need to be aware of the risks, and indicates that these complications sometimes require additional surgery, and even then, many women are left with long term problems from transvaginal mesh. As a result of these reports by women, Health Canada is reviewing the labeling on transvaginal mesh products to determine whether additional information should be provided.
