In January 2016, the FDA reclassified pelvic mesh as a class III high-risk device. In addition, more than 100,000 women have suffered injury and harm as a result of negligence on behalf of the manufacturer, resulting in numerous lawsuits.
Pelvic mesh can leave women with severe, lifelong injuries.
Possible side effects of pelvic mesh include:
- Erosion through the vaginal epithelium
- Serious infection
- Bowel perforation
- Return of pelvic organ prolapse
- Bladder perforation
- Urinary incontinence
- Pain and scarring
