A growing number of women continue to report severe transvaginal mesh complications after receiving the medical device for the repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Below is a vaginal mesh recall list that will be updated as manufacturers announce surgery mesh recall of their products. With this condition, the muscles that support the pelvic organs weaken or become stretched. This allows the bladder, rectum, uterus, or small bowel to drop from their positions. The prolapsed organs press against the front or back wall of the vagina, or in the case of the uterus, falls into the vaginal opening. Mesh is supposed to correct this problem, and alleviate the patient’s symptoms. Instead, thousands of women are now saddled with numerous pelvic mesh injuries.
All medical devices pose a small risk of failure. Occasionally, a product causes so many problems that the FDA issues a formal safety notification to warn the public. This was the case in 2008, when the number of transvaginal mesh complications had reached the point that the FDA felt compelled to caution patients and doctors. But even then, the complications were considered rare.
Things changed in 2011, when the FDA issued a second warning. It now described the problems caused by vaginal mesh placement as “not rare.” The agency revealed it had received nearly 2,900 new reports of complications since the previous warning, a number they considered high enough to warrant concern. In addition, serious side effects not previously reported had come to light. These issues have helped trigger a wave of transvaginal mesh lawsuit claims as women seek to recover compensation for their injuries.
In January 2012, the FDA sent letter to over 30 surgical mesh manufacturers ordering new safety studies in light of increasing reports of complications which include:
• Vaginal mesh erosion
• Painful sexual intercourse
• Recurrent pelvic organ prolapse
• Urinary problems
• Pelvic and vaginal pain
