On July 13th, the FDA issued an Alert stating that serious complications associated with vaginal mesh/bladder slings for transvaginal POP repair are not rare. In fact, the FDA noted that they have received thousands of voluntary reports from patients, friends or doctors indicating complications occurring as a result of the vaginal mesh/bladder sling, with at least 10 of the reports resulting in death. Recent studies estimate that the actual rate of injury is likely to increase significantly, which should not be surprising considering that more than 100,000 of these types of procedures are performed annually. There could be tens of thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths according to reports made to the FDA.
