The FDA ordered mesh devices for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse off the market. The decision affects products by several manufacturers, including Boston Scientific.

After years of advocacy by injured patients, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has ordered the makers of mesh devices for the repair of pelvic organ prolapse to remove the products from the U.S. market.

The announcement Tuesday came after years of scrutiny and well over 100,000 lawsuits from women around the world who said the mesh products caused painful complications. Makers of the products include two companies with major operations in Minnesota, Coloplast A/S and Boston Scientific Corp.
