The device is first launched in 1996 and made by various manufacturers that use a range of synthetic or biological materials in their devices, which are designed for permanent implantation. However TVM has been linked to serious health complications that can often require painful and invasive revision surgeries to correct. Around 100,000 federal lawsuits have been filed against seven manufacturers of mesh products in the U.S court.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration this year re-labeled the products high risk instead of moderate and announced new federal scrutiny for the company. The reclassification of the mesh is a confirmation of the inherent danger of these products. The FDA ordered the manufacturers to endure a premarket approval (PMA) application to support the safety and effectiveness of surgical mesh for the treatment of POP. The FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health deputy director of science and chief scientist William Maisel states that these stronger clinical requirements will help to address the severe risks associated with surgical mesh for repair of pelvic organ prolapse. The agency previously reported in 2008 that adverse event causes by surgical mesh are rare but in 2011 the FDA updated its statement and warned patients and doctors that the transvaginal placement of the surgical mesh may put women at a greater risk for POP mesh complications than other surgical options and it is not rare.
