Is Transvaginal Mesh Phase Out Appropriate Response?

July 23, 2012

In the wake of thousands of patient complications, the maker of a surgical mesh used to treat women’s pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), Johnson & Johnson, decided earlier this summer to phase out four mesh products between September 2012 and early 2013. However with as many as 75,000 patients undergoing a transvaginal mesh operation in 2011 alone, some observers are asking whether this gradual phase-out is too slow a course of action.

 

Just how common are transvaginal mesh complications? According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as many as 10 percent of transvaginal mesh patients experience complications within a year of the mesh implantation surgery. A majority of these patients were secondary surgeries – and in some cases, even more follow medical procedures.
