Repairing Pelvic Organ Prolapse: What’s Best?

Sharing the attached article  and video which were posted at: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/761692, on Apr 18, 2012,
from Dr. Diane Mitchell, Assistant Director for Science in the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health.  (also an obstetrician/gynecologist).

At one point, she says,

“The panel generally agreed that, depending on the anatomical areas involved, vaginal placement of mesh for POP repair may NOT  be more effective than repair without mesh, and that clinical studies are needed for premarket evaluation of vaginal mesh for POP repair.”
