New Vaginal Mesh Implant Material Could Reduce Complications, Accelerate Healing
Vaginal mesh implants made of polypropylene have caused severe medical complications in millions of women across the world, and medical manufacturers from Johnson & Johnson to Bard, acquired by BD last year, have been mired in lawsuits as a result. Now, scientists at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom have developed an alternative polyurethane material to treat pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence that is better suited for use in the pelvic floor. Moreover, they have embedded the material with estrogen, which is released into the surrounding pelvic tissue to form new blood vessels and accelerate the he...

Appeals court upholds $19m Boston Scientific loss in pelvic mesh case
Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX) has lost another bid as it looked to overturn an $18.5 million loss in a product liability suit over alleged injuries caused by its Obtryx pelvic mesh. A jury in West Virginia federal court in November 2014 found Boston Scientific liable to 4 women following a 10-day trial; the trial judge later ordered the Marlborough, Mass.-based company to pay each of the 4 women damages ranging from $3.25 million to $4.25 million (the 4th plaintiff later settled her case out of court and it was dismissed). In its appeal, Boston Scientific argued that the court’s decision to consoli...

What is the Difference Between an Association and a Syndrome?
Discussion VATER association was first described in the 1970s with additional congenital malformations being added to the association so it is most often called VACTERL association. It is a highly heterogeneous, overlapping condition estimated to occur in ~1/10,000-40,000 births. The cause is unknown. In animal models, some signaling pathway gene mutations have phenotypes of VACTERL association. Experts suggest that patients having at least 2 components should be further evaluated (at least 3 for diagnosis) for VACTERL and other diseases in its differential diagnosis. There are more than 30 syndromes, mutations and diseas...
