In many cases, the mesh must be surgically removed. In some cases, complete removal is not possible and may result in prolonged complications or suffering.
FDA Warning Outlines Risks Associated with Vaginal Mesh
The FDA initially alerted the public to vaginal mesh problems in 2008 when it issued an urgent public health notification regarding serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh in the repair of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. On July 13, 2011, the FDA issued a comprehensive medical alert to physicians warning, that in most instances, the risk of serious injury outweighed all purported benefits associated with the use of mesh.
