On October 20, 2008, the FDA issued a Public Health Notification about serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.
For the past three years, the FDA received over 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers regarding complications of these devices, including Bard. The vaginal mesh implants are placed transvaginally with tools that are considered minimally invasive.
The FDA has received thousands of reports of complications from women injured by transvaginal mesh. Women and their families have filed more than 13,000 federal lawsuits against the manufacturers of these products.VAGINAL MESH FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW:

According to the FDA’s notification, “Specific characteristics of patients at increased risk for complications have not been determined. Contributing factors may include the overall health of the patient, the mesh material, the size and shape of the mesh, the surgical technique used, concomitant procedures undertaken (e.g. hysterectomy), and possibly estrogen status.”
