Bladder sling procedures (vaginal sling) are performed to help treat stress urinary incontinence problems which involve urine leaking during physical activity or when a person laughs, sneezes or coughs. Unfortunately, an increasing number of women have reported serious bladder sling complications following surgery using synthetic mesh. Currently, there is no bladder sling recall covering all of the various manufacturers and mesh products being used in stress incontinence surgeries.
In November 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a public warning regarding surgery mesh complications from surgeries for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP). According to the FDA “Over a three year time span, manufactures of surgical mesh reported adverse events in over 1,000 surgeries.”
On July 13, 2011 the FDA issued a new safety announcement called UPDATE on Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse. The FDA reported that the instance of surgery mesh complications from surgical mesh used in POP and SUI repairs was not rare as was previously believed.
