Transvaginal Mesh Reclassification

In early January of 2016 the FDA reclassified mesh used for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) from a class II to a class III medical device. The reclassification means this use of mesh is now in the high-risk category.

In 2011 the FDA identified potential serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh for POP repair. It conducted an analysis of published scientific literature and reviewed several thousand reports of complications related to transvaginal mesh; it also considered and discussed approximately 200 public comments. Due to this reevaluation, the FDA determined that reclassifying mesh used for transvaginal repair of POP was appropriate.
