Adhesion may cause serious complications including chronic pain, intestinal obstruction and enterocutanic fistulae.22-24 Traditional meshes are made of propylene: whilst this is strong and stable, it easily causes adhesion.22,25,26 When adhesion occurs, it is recommended to implant an anti-adhesion mesh, a novel prosthesis coated in a material to lower adhesion.

Food and Drug Administration stated that vaginal meshes should be subject to stricter safety requirements as they are more high-risk than initially thought.
Polypropylene meshes are monofilament, non-absorbable, inert, sterile and porous with thickness approximately 0.44mm while polyester meshes are non-absorbable, polyfilament meshes with properties mimicking polypropylene.
Current inpatient reimbursement systems do not compensate facilities for the additional costs of biologic meshes which may be several fold more costly.
This is because transvaginal meshes are currently classified as class II devices and, as such, have been cleared for market by the less rigorous 510(k) notification process rather than a more rigorous premarket approval (PMA) process.
