There was a warning recently issued by The Federal Drug Administration regarding serious complications with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh for pelvic organ prolapse.
The FDA warns that people who have undergone surgical repair for either pelvic organ prolapsed (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). These are the people who may be the victims of the surgical mesh that is usually used in surgical treatments for POP and SUI.
The surgical mesh is used to repair weakened or damaged tissue in urogynecologic surgical procedures and is permanently placed. It is placed to repair POP or to support the urethra in treating SUI. However, there is an FDA warning regarding this product and attorneys are also investigating the problems the surgical mesh may be causing.
