The 501(k) process is popular with many companies, since it allows them to bypass crucial safety testing requirements when the FDA has already approved similar products. The only thing that manufacturers have to do is to demonstrate that their new product is as effective and safe or even significantly equivalent to any product already approved for sale.

There are no requirements for the mesh to go through any clinical trials of for the FDA to take a closer look. As a consequence, many defective mesh products wound up finding their way into various operating rooms, thus also into patient abdomens.
