The Dallas Observer and reporter Amy Silverstein offer this coverage of the Martha Salazar v. Boston Scientific trial underway in Dallas. She wrote  a May feature story, about the Batiste trial. She was awarded $1.2 million by a jury in her defective mesh case against Johnson & Johnson.  Jurors also found her TVT-O was defectively designed.

The second trial, currently under way, is against Boston Scientific, over its Obtryx mesh, another polypropylene permanent device implanted in women with no FDA assurances for safety.

Here is Silverstein’s continuing coverage.

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.
