Surgical placement of mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse poses risks


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a news release on July 13, 2011. The release ( declared “Surgical placement of mesh to repair pelvic organ prolapse poses risks.” The agency said other options may expose women to less risk than the transvaginal procedure.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is when the tissues that support the bowels, bladder, and womb become stretched or weak leading to organs sinking. The organs that may sink are the bowels, bladder, and womb. These organs can bulge into the birth canal. When this occurs, a woman can have discomfort, decreased sexual, urination, and bowel movement ability.

Surgery to repair a POP sometimes includes a mesh (cloth-like material). Some of the frequent complications from this mesh are poking through the birth canal, bleeding, infection, pain during sex, and accidental cutting of body parts during surgery.
