Transvaginal mesh and pelvic / bladder support products are used to treat Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP), and other conditions that result in a weakening in the pelvic region. SUI and POP are a common problem after a hysterectomy or childbirth. They are often referred to as a “hammock” or a “sling.”These pelvic/vaginal meshes have been linked to conditions such as vaginal scarring, a need for subsequent surgeries and protrusion of the mesh through the vagina. If you or a loved one had a transvaginal mesh implanted, please call us.

On Oct. 20, 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) issued a Public Health Notification and Additional Patient Information on serious complications associated with surgically placed transvaginal meshes used to treat POP and SUI.
On July 13, 2011, the FDA updated its warning with the further caution “that serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of POP are not rare.” The FDA went on to further state that the transvaginal mesh “may expose patients to greater risk.”
