Furthermore, the jury ruled that responsibility lay with Boston Scientific in regard to the injuries sustained by the plaintiff in the case, Martha Salazar.

As detailed in the Bloomberg article, Salazar underwent four surgical operations to remove her Obtryx bladder sling that she claimed was causing her severe pain.
