Undergoing Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh may expose women to heightened risk of:
- Erosion through the vaginal tissue
- Pain during intercourse
- Organ perforation from surgical tools used in the placement procedure
- Urinary problems
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently stated that the use of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapsed may carry more risks than other surgical options, without any evidence of greater benefit. Some of those treated with surgical mesh have needed additional surgeries and/or hospitalization in order to remedy complications or remove the mesh. In 2010 alone, there were approximately 100,000 pelvic organ prolapsed repairs with surgical mesh. In addition, because mesh is a permanent implant, the FDA has warned that "complete removal may not be possible and may not result in complete resolution of complications."
