1 doctor agrees
In brief: Complicated
Problems have occurred with the use of mesh .
Most are related to mesh eroding thru the vaginal wall. Some have required a second surgery. The fda issue with the use of mesh vaginally is: many of the products were not studied prior to putting them on the market. Companies only had to show similarity to a product already approved. Docs were not trained adequately. Reported complications increased.
