Increase in surgical mesh complications prompts FDA to ask for new studies

Posted on January 5th, 2012 No Comments

Surgical mesh implants used in female patients to correct pelvic organ prolapse are under investigation after an increase in complications have been reported.

The Food and Drug Administration, FDA, has asked for new studies to be conducted on the surgical mesh products. There is also consideration to move the product into a category associated with more risk. This move could cause manufacturers to organize clinical trials of the mesh before being able to sell it.

Between 2008 and 2010, the FDA reported that there were 1,500 complaints regarding complications from this particular surgical mesh. They have asked that the studies last three years in length and examine female patients’ reactions to the mesh as well as their well-being after the surgery.
