NOVEMBER 2015 – On October 16, 2015, in the US District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, the federal jury ruled in favor of Boston Scientific Corp., in a case regarding the risks and dangers of transvaginal mesh (TVM). The Uphold TVM manufacturer was stated to have no liability for flaws in the design. The trial went on for 10 days, where a victim of the Uphold Vaginal Support System testified about her chronic pain and other injuries due to the permanently implanted device. It was found that the doctor who implanted the device did not follow the correct directions in this particular case. A portion of the testimony focused on the polypropylene material used to manufacture the mesh. The case alleged that the material stiffens as it degrades, contributing to the injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
