The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued its first communication regarding the dangers associated with transvaginal mesh in October 2008, and followed up with a second public warning in July 2011. According to the FDA, transvaginal mesh complications following pelvic organ prolapse repair are not rare. What’s more, the agency also stated that it is “not clear that transvaginal POP repair with mesh is any more effective than traditional [transvaginal surgery without mesh] … and may expose patients to greater risk.”
