If you underwent pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence surgery repair you may have suffered surgery vaginal mesh complications including having an additional surgery mesh removal procedure. Currently there is no national bladder surgical mesh recall that covers all of the different brands of synthetic mesh products and manufacturers.
Starting in the 1990’s gynecologists began implanting surgical mesh to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and transvaginal surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Surgical mesh is typically used to help aid in the reinforcement of tissues and bone that are weak by implanting the mesh which strengthens those weak areas. Surgery mesh products are presently covered by what is referred to as “Class II devices” and reviewed under the 510K Premarket Notification Program.
In 1996, the Food and Drug Administration approved surgery mesh products that were designed specifically for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. Several years later, in 2002 the FDA approved surgery mesh for the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse. Over time these various surgery mesh products were combined into “kits” to assist in the delivery and implanting of the surgical mesh.
There are generally four categories of surgery mesh materials which include:
• Non-absorbable synthetic (polyester or polypropylene)
• Absorbable synthetic
• Composite (combination of biologic, absorbable or non-absorbable)
The majority of surgery mesh products approved for surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence are made from non-absorbable synthetic polypropylene.
If you or a loved one have experienced surgery mesh complications following an implant of mesh or suffered injuries due to surgery mesh erosion you may have a claim against the manufacturer.
