Health Canada, the Canadian equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), issued an announcement in early May 2014 with new information on transvaginal mesh. Their announcement pertained specifically to those mesh devices used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
Health Canada supplied a list of health complications that are often identified in patient reports. Patients have suffered from:
- chronic pain
- dyspareunia, or painful intercourse
- mesh erosion
- mesh contraction
- internal damages caused by mesh implant
- return of POP and SUI symptoms
- reparative surgeries following damage from defective mesh
The Canadian medical devices regulator is considering if updates to safety information for transvaginal mesh products will be necessary, according to their news release.
