Testing for Fake Parts in Boston Scientific's Surgical Mesh

Testing for Fake Parts in Boston Scientific's Surgical Mesh

Surgical mesh is used to provide additional support when weakened or damaged tissue is being repaired. There is currently a great deal of litigation surrounding surgical mesh, and one more company is being investigated.

The USDA is looking into claims that Boston Scientific is using counterfeit materials in their urogynecologic surgical mesh. The FDA announced on their website that the mesh "may contain counterfeit raw material, and that health care professionals and their patients should be aware of this investigation."

Boston Scientific will be conducting tests for the next several months to check this material and their product. The FDA said, "The additional testing should be sufficient for the FDA to determine whether or not the urogynecologic surgical mesh manufactured from the alleged counterfeit raw material are equivalent to the urogynecologic surgical mesh manufactured from the original raw material supplier."

If you or a loved one has used Boston Scientific surgical mesh, you may have a personal injury claim. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Gardberg & Kemmerly, P.C..
