Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Once thought of as a long-term solution to pelvic organ prolapse, currently synthetic mesh augmentation is regarded as a dark area that is being critically assessed by surgeons, hospitals, industry, and most importantly the Food and Drug Administration. The development of midurethral sling kits has revolutionized the surgical treatment of stress incontinence. These systems, however, were not rigorously tested but instead marketed after being cleared by the Food and Drug Administration through a simple regulatory process using a previously approved predescent material. This article reviews the management of mesh complications of synthetic slings and mesh used to augment prolapse repair.
