A lawsuit by a California woman allegedly injured after implantation of the Lynx Sling System, manufactured by Boston Scientific to treat stress urinary incontinence is scheduled to begin trial in Alameda County, California on January 12, 2015.

Despite the fact that thousands of women have been injured and sued over its vaginal mesh products, Boston Scientific continues to hide important information about Lynx and the serious risks of synthetic mesh.

Audet and Partners, LLP reports that claims brought by the firm on behalf of a California woman allegedly injured by a transvaginal mesh implant manufactured by Boston Scientific Corporation has been scheduled to commence trial on January 12, 2015. The case, Milan v. Rama, et al, Superior Court of California, County of Alameda, Case No. RG13682257*, names individual physicians and medical personnel, as well as Diablo Valley Women OB/GYN Medical Group, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corporation as defendants against claims ranging from negligence to medical negligence, lack of informed consent, and strict liability.

The Plaintiff in this transvaginal mesh lawsuit, Rebecca Milan, has alleged serious personal injuries related to implantation of Boston Scientific’s Lynx Suprapubic Mid-Urethral Sling System (“Lynx”). The alleged injuries suffered by Ms. Milan subsequent to the transvaginal mesh surgery included extreme physical pain and discomfort, infections, pain with sexual intercourse, bladder spasms, and a recurrence of the stress urinary incontinence which the surgery in question was intended to alleviate.

As a result of the above-referenced complications, Ms. Milan allegedly required a second remedial surgery during which the Lynx sling was removed, and a more “traditional” procedure known as a Burch procedure was performed on the Plaintiff. This remedial surgery allegedly led to further physical pain and discomfort experienced by the Plaintiff.

The Plaintiff in this action is represented by attorneys Marc E. Burton and Young S. Lee of Audet and Partners, LLP, a national plaintiff’s firm based in San Francisco that is representing several individuals in pending transvaginal mesh litigation, as well as other cases involving defective medical devices. “Despite the fact that thousands of women have been injured and sued over its vaginal mesh products, Boston Scientific continues to hide important information about Lynx and the serious risks of synthetic mesh. It continues to promote its mesh to doctors that need to be better informed and need to tell their patients about the real risks of synthetic vaginal mesh and the lack of clinical trials,” states Marc Burton, an attorney for Ms. Milan.
