Boston Scientific Mesh Recall

October 20, 2012

Vaginal mesh manufacturers, including Boston Scientific, have been targeted with lawsuits alleging that their products are responsible for the injuries of thousands of women treated with these devices. Across the nation many women, doctors, and other health professionals urge the FDA to consider a mesh recall in an attempt to spare further women from suffering from serious mesh complications, like mesh erosion, infection, and chronic pain. Presently, the FDA has not declared a Boston Scientific Mesh Recall although they have raised serious questions regarding the safety of vaginal mesh used for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence surgery. In addition to Boston Scientific, these three major mesh makers have also had the safety of their products questioned:

  • Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary
  • American Medical Systems
  • C. R. Bard

Boston Scientific FDA Mesh Warning

The United States Food and Drug Administration have been very vocal about their involvement in the controversy surrounding vaginal mesh including Boston Scientific mesh implant products. Presently, there has been no official Boston Scientific mesh recall issued by the FDA. However, there have been more than one safety communication issued by the agency regarding the serious and “not rare” serious complications associated with the use of surgical mesh in urogynecology and urology surgery for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. The FDA warning suggests that these complications are not associated with one brand of mesh, so the safety of Boston Scientific mesh is also in question.
