In July 2011, the FDA warned consumers of serious complications associated with the placement of surgical mesh for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The most frequent problems include:
- vaginal mesh erosion (exposure, extrusion or protrusion)
- urinary problems or incontinence
- organ perforation
- dyspareunia (pain during intercourse)
Other problems may include:
- recurrent prolapse
- neuro-muscular problems
- vaginal scarring or shrinkage
- emotional problems
According to the FDA there have been several reported deaths associated with the mesh placement procedure and post-operative medical complications with mesh.
More than 2,000 women across the United States have filed federal and state level lawsuits against manufacturers of transvaginal mesh, including Johnson & Johnson's Ethicon, C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems and Boston Scientific.
