Transvaginal Mesh & the FDA

After thousands of adverse events being reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), they have reclassified transvaginal mesh as a class III, or high-risk, medical device when used for repairing pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The new regulation will require manufacturers to submit a pre-market approval application containing studies regarding the device’s capability and safety.

Transvaginal mesh is a medical device that is typically used in the treatment of POP, as well as is a lower risk treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). In POP repair, the mesh is placed through the vagina (transvaginal) and surgically implanted in order to support weakened muscles and keep pelvic organs from dropping. Whereas for SUI, the surgical mesh is positioned at the bladder neck or the urethra in order to prevent incontinence.

The serious adverse events women are reporting include:

  • Mesh erosion: The device erodes the vaginal wall and can break down into smaller pieces.
  • Organ perforation: The sharp edges of the mesh puncture the vagina or nearby organs.
  • Pain in vagina or pelvic area
  • Severe bleeding
  • Infection
  • Painful urination
  • Vaginal scarring or shrinkage
  • Dyspareunia: Pain during or after intercourse
  • Reoccuring POP or SUI
  • Transvaginal mesh revision surgeries: women will often need to be operated on again and possibly multiple times to remove and repair damage the mesh has done.
