Endo International Plc has agreed to pay $830 million to resolve about 20,000 lawsuits filed by women who were injured by transvaginal mesh devices. The company said in a statement that the settlement agreement will resolve what it called a substantial majority of the mesh litigation brought against its American Medical Systems subsidiary.
Endo is among several major medical-device manufacturers that have been hit with tens of thousands of lawsuits over the mesh devices, which are used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. As we have reported in prior issues, women have alleged they suffered pain during sex, bleeding and other complications from the devices. The Endo settlement agreement is subject to several conditions, including confirmation of medical records for plaintiffs. Endo said it had previously set aside $520 million to cover all legal claims arising from the mesh devices.
