Summary

A Missouri state court jury has handed a major victory to Boston Scientific Corp. and C.R. Bard Inc., finding that two of the companies' pelvic mesh implants are not defective and did not cause injuries to a retired nurse who claimed the devices left her in chronic pain.

The jury deliberated for less than two days before deciding 10-2 that Boston Scientific’s Solyx and Bard’s Align implants did not cause plaintiff Eve Sherrer’s discomfort. Sherrer’s attorneys argued the implants used a type of polypropylene mesh that was too stiff for use in human tissue, but the defendants successfully convinced jurors that Sherrer’s pain could be the result of arthritis in her hip and other medical conditions.
