What is transvaginal mesh used to treat?
Transvaginal mesh products are surgically implanted devices used to support weak or damaged vaginal walls. The conditions they are normally designed to correct include pelvic organ prolapse (POP) – a condition in which organs of the lower abdominal region slip out of place – and stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is characterized by the inability to control urination when increasing pressure within the abdominal region.
FDA Public Health Notification on Transvaginal Mesh Devices
In 2008, the FDA published an urgent public health notification regarding the serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh in repair of POP and SUI. To date, the administration has received well over 1,000 reports about serious complications related to the placement and use of these devices.
