In November 2014, Boston Scientific Corp. was ordered to pay $26.7 million to 4 plaintiffs who allege injury as a result of the company’s transvaginal mesh devices. Following an eight-day trial, a jury in Miami’s federal court found that Boston Scientific Corp. had defectively designed the Pinnacle pelvic-organ implant and had failed to properly warn doctors and patients about the implant’s risk. Risks often include erosion leading to pain and organ damage. A representative for Boston Scientific Corp. denied the device suffered from design flaws and indicated that the company had strong grounds to overturn the verdict. More than 14,000 mesh cases are currently pending nationwide against Boston Scientific Corp.
