The Food and Drug Administration have determined that he placement of surgical mesh through the vagina to treat pelvic organ prolapsed and stress urinary incontinence may present greater risk for the patient than other non-mesh procedures. According to their findings, reported complications from the transvaginal placement of the mesh include erosion of the mesh into the vaginal tissue, organ perforation, pain, infection, painful intercourse, and urinary and fecal incontinence. Women often require additional surgery to have the mesh removed. The FDA has recently updated its safety warning about the mesh to medical professionals as well as patients.
