Vaginal Mesh Problems
Between the years of 2005 and 2010, nearly 4,000 vaginal mesh injuries have been reported to the Food and Drug Administration. In a 2010 article in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, researchers stated that they had to cease a vaginal mesh clinical trial early because of the higher-than-expected number of complications and injuries. The trial was stopped when it was discovered that more than 15 percent of women who were implanted with vaginal mesh suffered vaginal mesh erosion within only three months of implantation. As a result of numerous negative reports, the FDA issued a vaginal mesh warning to patients and physicians in 2011, cautioning that the risks of using vaginal mesh are so severe that alternative treatments should be considered. It is now widely accepted that, in most cases, pelvic organ prolapsed can be treated without the use of vaginal mesh
