BOSTON SCIENTIFIC TRANSVAGINAL MESH PROBLEMS
Boston Scientific Vaginal Mesh Lawyers

Problems with pelvic mesh or transvaginal bladder sling systems made by Boston Scientific and a number of other medical device manufacturers have caused thousands of women throughout he United States to suffer severe complications and injuries after surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.
In addition to bladder mesh products manufactured other companies, such as C.R. Bard, American Medical Systems (AMS) and Ethicon/Gynecare, product liability cases are being reviewed for women who may have received one of the following pelvic mesh or bladder sling product manufactured by Boston Scientific:
- Pinnacle Pelvic Floor Repair Kit
- Uphold Vaginal Support System
- Advantage Fit Transvaginal Mid-Urethral Sling System
- Obtryx Transobturator Mid-Urethral Sling
- Solynx SIS Vaginal Sling System
- Prefyx PPS Pelvic Sling System
- Lynx Suprapublic Mid-Urethral Sling System
Although these products have been promoted as a safe and effective alternative for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary bladder incontinence (SUI), the FDA has received thousands of adverse event reports involving Boston Scientific bladder mesh and vaginal sling systems, as well as similar products made by other companies.
Not only do the pelvic mesh systems pose a risk of serious complications, there appears to be no evidence that transvaginal insertion of a bladder sling provides any benefit over other available treatment for pelvic organ prolapse.
Boston Scientific and other manufacturers obtained approval for most of these devices under the FDA’s controversial 510(k) Premarket Notification System, which allows a manufacturer to start selling the product without vigorous premarket testing, if they can establish that it is substantially equivalent to something else that has already been approved.
A large number of the Boston Scientific vaginal mesh lawsuits filed in courts throughout the United States have involved problems with their pelvic floor repair kits:
▸ Boston Scientific Pinnacle Pelvic Mesh
The Pinnacle system is used to treat POP in post-hysterectomy patients. It is a 4-armed trapezoidal-shaped mesh designed to wrap around the vaginal apex toward the posterior compartment. It was approved through the accelerated 510(k) approval.
▸ Boston Scientific Uphold Vaginal Support System
The Uphold system is a two-armed mesh designed to repair combined apical/anterior defects, while leaving the uterus in place. Like the Pinnacle, it utilizes the Capio Suture Capturing Device, eliminating the need for trocar passes. Boston Scientific claims that the insertion of the Uphold is designed in a way that may reduce the risk of erosion that plagues many vaginal mesh products.
BOSTON SCIENTIFIC TRANSVAGINAL SLING LAWYERS
Compensation may be available through a Boston Scientific transvaginal mesh lawsuit as a result of the manufacturers’ failure to adequately research their products or warn about the serious risk of problems and complications. As a result of their decision to place profits before patient safety, thousands of women were exposed to a risk of painful and disfiguring injuries that may permanently impact their quality of life.
