Federal Health Experts Take Aim at Transvaginal Mesh Complications
A surgical mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is at the center of a developing storm that includes thousands of injured women, doctors, health experts, and the Food and Drug Administration. According to a recently released FDA report, the FDA is considering reclassifying transvaginal mesh products as Class III devices.
What are the implications of this potential reclassification? For the pharmaceutical companies that design, produce, and sell transvaginal mesh devices, it means delay, at least. For victims of transvaginal mesh complications, it’s further confirmation that the large numbers of pelvic mesh problems isn’t simply bad luck, but an unsafe product.
So, what exactly is going wrong with the transvaginal mesh? For thousands of women, the transvaginal mesh has eroded into their vagina, causing pain, bleeding, organ perforation, and recurrence of POP.
