Guidelines for Providing Privileges and Credentials to Physicians for Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Retracted

 American Urogynecologic Society’s Guidelines Development Committee

Erratum

At the request of the Executive Committee of The American Urogynecologic Society (AUGS), the Editors and Publisher retract the article “Guidelines for Providing Privileges and Credentials to Physicians for Transvaginal Placement of Surgical Mesh for Pelvic Organ Prolapse” by the American Urogynecologic Society’s Guidelines Development Committee, published in (2012, Volume 18, Issue 4, pages 194–197).

The retraction is necessary because the use of surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse is no longer approved. Due to a lack of reasonable safety and effectiveness for these devices, in April 2019, the FDA ordered manufacturers to stop selling and distributing all surgical mesh products.
