The product was supposed to help women manage their condition by having an implanted product surgically placed into the woman’s urethra so that it could help to support the muscles that are supposed to control the passage of urine out of the system. It is estimated that 35,000 women in the United States have had the product implanted into their systems. This product, however, does not work.
In 2006, after only three years on the market, the vaginal sling was removed from distribution in the United States. The reasons were quite specific – the product was leading to the development of several serious side effects in too many women, which meant that it had to be removed to prevent additional risks. In some cases, according to the report issued by the FDA, “vaginal scarring and mesh erosion led to a significant decrease in patient quality of life due to discomfort and pain, including dyspareunia.”
