About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    Thanks for compiling this list! What a great resource to refer people to. I have a lot of these listed on the footer of my blog, but missed some. It’s hard not to, there are more & more. Which is both good and bad, isn’t it?

    Can you update my listed blog link when you get a chance to be just:

    I also have a public Meshmenot Facebook page if you want to lost it:

    Thanks again!
