Thousands of patients who have had surgical mesh implanted have reported serious complications after the procedures. Transvaginal mesh and sling products are normally used in pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair surgery or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) procedures. But mesh erosion, infection, and extreme pain have led many people to take action to sue manufacturers, claiming that vaginal mesh products led to painful and debilitating complications.
FDA warning states surgical mesh is “area of serious concern”
In July of last year, the FDA issued an updated warning to medical doctors and to patients who are considering or who have received surgical mesh products. The FDA stated that, based on reports of adverse events and complications,
“…serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare. Furthermore, it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in all patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk.”
What complications are reported with transvaginal mesh and vaginal sling products?
Many women who have had surgical mesh implanted have reported many serious complications, including:
- Mesh erosion,
- Infection or bleeding,
