FDA Proposes to Reclassify Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse as High-Risk Device
By the Editors
Surgical mesh used for the transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse should be reclassified from a moderate-risk device to a high-risk one, according to a proposal released Tuesday by the FDA.
The most commonly reported complications associated with the mesh include mesh erosion through the vagina, pain, infection, bleeding, pain during sexual intercourse, organ perforation, and urinary problems.
The FDA also proposed that manufacturers of mesh devices be required to submit a premarket approval application for the agency to evaluate safety and effectiveness.
