Risks Associated With Surgical Mesh for Transvaginal Repair of Organ Prolapse
Surgical mesh is a medical device that is used to provide additional support when repairing weakened or damaged tissue. Thousands of women have reported serious transvaginal mesh side effects such as: erosion of the mesh through the vaginal wall, infection and bleeding, vaginal shortening and tightening, bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforation, pain and discomfort during sex (dyspareunia), and painful urination.
“The FDA has identified clear risks associated with surgical mesh for the transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse and is now proposing to address those risks for more safe and effective products,” said William Maisel, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director of science and chief scientist at the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued two proposed orders to address the health risks associated with surgical mesh used for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). If finalized, the orders would reclassify surgical mesh for transvaginal POP from a moderate-risk device (class II) to a high-risk device (class III) and require manufacturers to submit a premarket approval (PMA) application for the agency to evaluate safety and effectiveness.
