Pelvic Mesh

FDA reports injuries with medical device.

Pelvic mesh or transvaginal mesh devices are most commonly used to treat conditions caused by weakened pelvic muscles such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Complications and Injuries Include:

  • Pain or nerve damage

  • Revision surgery for removal

  • Infection

  • Bleeding

  • Erosion of vaginal tissue

  • Vaginal scarring

  • Perforation of bowel, bladder or blood vessels

  • Painful sexual intercourse

Have you been injured by pelvic mesh?

Although pelvic mesh implantation is less invasive than some treatments for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, the complication rate is much higher, often requiring revision surgery. After reviewing post-market studies and patient data, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that serious complications related to pelvic mesh were not rare and the device is no more effective at treating prolapse than non-mesh treatments.
