A Massachusetts state jury found for the defense, in the first of more than 20,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits filed against Boston Scientific. The plaintiff, Diane Albright, claimed that Boston Scientific Pinnacle transvaginal mesh was defective and caused her to suffer significant and painful pelvic injuries.
The Massachusetts jury found that Albright failed to prove her claim that the Boston Scientific mesh was defective or that inadequate warnings were provided about the risk of complications.
This case was the first Boston Scientific mesh lawsuit to go before a jury, and several Boston Scientific mesh trials are expected later next year. In Massachusetts state court, there are 1,700 cases against Boston Scientific, and the next trial is expected to begin on August 11.
