FDA Issues Multiple Warnings Against Transvaginal Mesh

August 31, 2011

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued not one, but multiple warnings against the use of a transvaginal mesh, the common name for the surgical mesh used to repair a pelvic organ prolapse (POP). According to the FDA, serious complications associated with the use of transvaginal mesh are “not rare” and, even more importantly, “it is not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is more effective than traditional non-mesh repair in patients with POP and it may expose patients to greater risk.” (emphasis added).
