Boston Scientific ordered to pay $73 million over mesh device

Sept 9 (Reuters) – A Texas jury has ordered Boston Scientific Corp to pay $73 million to a woman who said she suffered serious injuries from a transvaginal mesh device, the first loss for the device maker in one of thousands of suits over the products.

The damage award and finding of gross negligence against the company came Monday evening following a two-week trial in a state court in Dallas, Texas, according to court filings.
