FDA Public Health Notification: October 20, 2008.

Serious Complications Associated with Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh in Repair of pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence

This was the initial warning that said complications associated with transvaginal placement of surgical mesh are rare. That was corrected by July 2011.

This notification was at least in part, encouraged by the patient advocacy group, Truth in Medicine.
