Bladder slings are medical devices used in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Many bladder slings have not met reasonable safety standards and patients have suffered various injuries because of bladder sling mesh erosion.
On October 20, 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a FDA Warning regarding serious complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh. The FDA warning stated that, over the last three years, it has received more than 1,000 reports from nine surgical mesh manufacturers of complications that were associated with surgical mesh devices used to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
