The FDA issued a Public Health Notification in October 20, 2008 that the agency had received some 1,000 reports of adverse events related to the use of transvaginal surgical mesh.

The FDA advised that “though rare, these complications can have serious consequences.” Then, in 2011, they issued an IMPORTANT UPDATE stating serious complications associated with the use of surgical mesh were not rare. The FDA changed its position on the risk of complications from “rare” to “not rare” after 2,875 injuries relating to the mesh were reported between 2008 and 2010.

Side Effects of Transvaginal Mesh

The most common side effect reported to the FDA is vaginal mesh erosion, a serious complication that can cause the skin to split. These potentially dangerous side effects became apparent in 2009 when a clinical trial was stopped prematurely after 15% of the women implanted with the mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within a period of only three months. Many women who received a transvaginal mesh implant for pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence had complications after surgery.

Women who a transvaginal mesh implant have reported serious complications:

  • Mesh Erosion, Exposure, and/or Protrusion
  • Recurrence of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
  • Recurrence of Stress Urinary Incontinence
  • Pain, Infection & Bleeding
  • Pain During Sexual Intercourse
  • Organ Perforation
  • Vaginal Scarring or Shrinkage
  • Nerve Damage
  • Fecal Incontinence
  • Fistula

The manufacturers involved in the production of transvaginal mesh include:

  • American Medical Systems
  • Boston Scientific
  • Bard
  • Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon)
