In the second federal transvaginal mesh lawsuit to go to trial, Boston Scientific was dealt another verdict requiring them to compensate plaintiffs. After deliberating for over six hours, the jury in this second case decided that Boston Scientific failed to properly warn healthcare providers and patients about the risks associated with their transvaginal mesh product, the Obtryx.
Furthermore, the jury also agreed that Boston Scientific is responsible for plaintiffs’ injuries from Obtryx implants.
The jury voted to award the four plaintiffs in the case $18.5 million.
The plaintiffs in this West Virginia case claimed that they suffered transvaginal mesh erosion, which can cause organ damage, bleeding, infection, and severe pain.
Some women who have received transvaginal mesh implants must undergo numerous surgical operations to remove the mesh. In some cases, all of the mesh cannot be removed, which results in a lifetime of discomfort and pain from a poorly-designed, defective medical product.
Fortunately, for the plaintiffs in this case, they have recovered losses for injuries caused by defective transvaginal mesh.
