Boston Scientific is a manufacturer of transvaginal mesh. Transvaginal mesh is surgically implanted mesh to treat, among other things, urinary incontinence. To date, more than 25,000 women have filed claims against Boston Scientific for injuries they suffered from the transvaginal mesh. This week Boston Scientific announces that it had reached its first settlement to resolve some of the claims alleging injury from transvaginal mesh. It will pay about $119 million to settlement over 2,900 of the claims filed against it.
The settlement comes after two juries reached verdicts against Boston Scientific. In West Virginia, a jury returned a verdict of $18.5 million. IN Miami, a jury returned a verdict of $26.7 million on behalf of four women who suffered pain, bleeding, and infection after being implanted with Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh.
