The FDA is holding a hearing on September 8th and 9th to decide on stricter safety measures and a possible recall for the harmful product that is primarily used for pelvic organ prolapse. Other names for this product are the pelvic sling and bladder mesh. Problems that have been reported to the FDA include:
- Vaginal Mesh Erosion, Protrusion and Extrusion through the Vagina
- Vaginal Mesh Hardening
- Urinary Problems
- Pelvic Pain or Vaginal Pain
- Injury to Nearby Organs
- Difficulty or Pain During Sexual Intercourse
In July 2011 the FDA warned doctors that in most cases pelvic organ prolapse can be treated successfully without implanting transvaginal mesh. Furthermore, mesh products “may expose patients to greater risk” than traditional repairs without mesh, FDA staff said, adding they have “not seen conclusive evidence” of improved clinical outcomes with the devices.
