DALLAS — A vaginal mesh lawsuit trial resulted in a huge verdict for a woman harmed by the defective medical device.
The woman sued Boston Scientific for injuries she alleged were caused by the Obtryx sling. Bladder slings and transvaginal mesh devices have harmed tens of thousands of woman in recent years.
The manufacturer had prevailed in two previous trials, but a jury in Dallas, Texas determined that Boston Scientific Corp. (BSX) was liable and ordered the company to pay $73 million to the plaintiff. She suffered constant pain from the incontinence sling. The substantial jury award demonstrates that juries will not tolerate reckless corporate conduct.
Boston Scientific faces more than 12,000 lawsuits in which women contend its vaginal mesh implants, including the slings, erode within the body. Organs may be damaged and pain can result, requiring surgery to remove the device. Many injuries appear permanent.
