Boston Scientific Wins First Vaginal-Mesh Injury Trial

Boston Scientific Corp. won the first case to go trial over its vaginal-mesh devices after a Massachusetts jury rejected a woman’s claims the mesh’s faulty design caused her injuries, a plaintiffs lawyer said.

Jurors in state court in Massachusetts yesterday found Boston Scientific officials properly designed the Pinnacle mesh implanted in Diane Albright to support her pelvic muscles and adequately warned her about the device’s risks, Fred Thompson, one of the woman’s lawyers, said in a telephone interview.
