American Medical Systems Begins Vaginal Mesh Study

ams_transvaginal_mesh_lawsuit_settlementsAs mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), American Medical Systems (AMS) has started its transvaginal mesh study by enrolling its first participant. The transvaginal mesh manufacturer announced the enrollment in a press release published by the Wall Street Journal.

According to the press release, the AMS study will take place over a period of five years, with two years designated as an enrollment period, and the remaining three years allotted for tracking patient health. The study is to look at the AMS transvaginal mesh product, Elevate (TM) Anterior and Apical Prolapse Repair System.

Though news of the AMS transvaginal mesh study is a welcome announcement, such an in-depth examination of the health effects of transvaginal mesh for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) would have best been conducted prior to releasing these types of products onto the market.
