FDA Boston Scientific Bladder Sling Warning
A July 2011 safety communication from the United States Food and Drug Administration made several updates to previously reported safety concerns regarding bladder sling complications. In this FDA alert, several new bladder sling concerns were discussed regarding all types of transvaginal mesh, including Boston Scientific products. Key findings include the following:
1) The use of transvaginal mesh bladder slings creates new risks that are non-existent in other types of treatment for pelvic organ prolapse.
2) There is no evidence suggesting that mesh bladder slings provide any benefit in comparison to non-mesh surgery.
The complications that can arise from treatment with a Boston Scientific bladder sling include: bladder sling erosion and mesh contraction. Bladder sling complications can result in harrowing pain, Dyspareunia, organ perforation, urinary problems, as well as other injuries.
