AG Ferguson: Mesh manufacturer Boston Scientific will pay more than $8.8 million for failing to disclose risks of its transvaginal mesh devices

OLYMPIA — Attorney General Bob Ferguson today announced that Boston Scientific, a medical device manufacturer, will pay more than $8.8 million to Washington for misrepresentations and failure to include serious risks in the instructions and marketing materials for surgical mesh devices.

Ferguson’s office led the multistate case against Boston Scientific, Washington’s third resolution in the last three years against companies that produce surgical mesh devices. Including today’s funds, Ferguson has garnered approximately $20 million for Washington women who received transvaginal mesh.
