November 2008 FDA warning of complications related to Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh, over a three-year period, 9 surgical mesh manufacturers submitted more than 1000 reports of complications in relation to the use of the transvaginal surgical mesh in the treatment of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP).
The post surgical complications include but are not limited to;
* bowel, bladder, and blood vessel perforations
* erosion through vaginal epithelium
* recurrence of prolapse and/or incontinence
* urinary problems
In some cases, vaginal scarring and mesh erosion led to significant discomfort and pain, significantly decreasing the patient’s quality of life.
While the number of complications reported to the FDA seems high, the true number may be much higher, as every incident adverse events is not always reported to federal regulators.
We believe that the poor design of the mesh plays a large role in many complications related to the procedure and that these injuries could have been avoided.
