Many women suffer pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence when internal support structures fail. To correct this, thousands of women undergo surgery each year using Transvaginal Mesh to hold internal organs in place.
Transvaginal Mesh Complications
Women with Transvaginal Mesh report serious complications—including perforation, bleeding, urinary problems, and pain during intercourse. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns frequent complications include erosion, infection, prolapse recurrence, and incontinence.
A History of FDA Action
Between 2005 and 2010, the FDA received over 3,875 injury reports and three fatality reports pertaining to Transvaginal Mesh complications. This began a chain of actions against manufacturers, including:
- 2011: The FDA issues an urgent safety communication advising patients and healthcare providers to consider alternatives to Transvaginal Mesh.
- 2016: The FDA reclassifies Transvaginal Mesh as a high-risk medical device, ordering manufacturers to document both safety and effectiveness.
- 2019: After determining two manufacturers failed to demonstrate safety and effectiveness, the FDA halts sales of Transvaginal Mesh in the U.S.
