Complications Due To Transvaginal Mesh Use

Women across the U.S. have been suffering serious injuries after receiving treatment involving the use of transvaginal surgical mesh patches. The mesh, which is manufactured by several companies, is used to hold internal organs in place after procedures to correct two conditions:

FDA warnings

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a major warning about transvaginal mesh patches in October 2008 after reports of more than 1,000 mesh patches causing adverse effects in patients. In many cases the patches, intended to repair weakened or deteriorated urethra, were failing. After a rise in the number of injuries and deaths linked to transvaginal mesh devices, in January 2012 the FDA ordered more than 30 makers of transvaginal surgical mesh to conduct post-market studies.

FDA information indicates that complications from failed transvaginal surgical mesh patches include:

  • Bladder perforation
  • Corrective surgery
  • Erosion of the mesh into the bladder, intestines, uterus and/or vagina
  • Incontinence/urinary complications
  • Infection
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pelvic hemorrhage or pain
  • Recurrence of POP
  • Shrinkage of the patch
