Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement warning of serious complications that may occur from having mesh surgically implanted into the vagina as a treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or urinary stress incontinence. POP occurs when weakened pelvic muscles and ligaments allow organs such as the bladder, urethra, and uterus to bulge into the vagina.
The warning follows a Public Health Notification issued by FDA in October 2008, in which the agency reported on serious complications associated with the transvaginal placement of mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse and urinary stress incontinence.
