Transvaginal Mesh and FDA Safety Alerts

Transvaginal mesh is an implantable medical device created to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in women. Reports of serious side effects from mesh has been going on for years and causing women to undergo one or more transvaginal mesh revision surgeries.

The disturbing amount of complications evoked a safety alert being issued by the FDA about transvaginal mesh in 2008 and an updated alert in 2011. The safety communication stated that the matter of mesh for transvaginal POP repair being any more effective than procedures without mesh is unclear and the risks may be higher.

In 2016, the FDA reclassified transvaginal POP mesh from a moderate-risk device (class II) to a high-risk device (class III). The new regulation also gave mesh product manufacturers 30 months to submit clinical studies proving that their devices currently on the market are safe and effective.

Symptoms of Transvaginal Mesh Complications

Transvaginal mesh, also known as bladder slings for SUI repair, have been linked to a number of serious complications. Women may encounter the following symptoms days or months following a procedure.

  • Erosion of the vaginal wall and/or device erosion
  • Chronic discharge
  • Bladder infections
  • Extrusion of the device
  • Incontinence
  • Dyspareunia: Pain during or after intercourse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Transvaginal mesh revision surgery: remove eroded pieces of or entire device
  • Infection
  • Recurrent prolapse
  • Organ perforation: eroded device may perforate nearby organs

Transvaginal Mesh Manufacturers

Manufacturers of transvaginal mesh have failed to properly design these products and adequately warn patients and doctors about their side effects.

The four major companies, out of the many that produce mesh devices, are:

  • American Medical Systems (AMS)
  • Ethicon, Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson
  • C.R. Bard
  • Boston Scientific Corporation

Due to thousands of filed lawsuits, some defective devices have been voluntarily pulled from the market by their manufacturers.
