Endo to Pay $830 Million to End 20,000 Vaginal-Mesh Suits

Endo International Plc will pay about $830 million to resolve about 20,000 lawsuits that alleged its vaginal-mesh implants eroded in some women and left them incontinent and in pain.

Endo’s American Medical Systems Inc. unit said yesterday in a statement that it’s settling the suits over devices including the Perigee, Apogee and Elevate implants. Dublin-based Endo still faces more than 23,000 claims over the inserts, Chief Executive Officer Rajiv De Silva said in a call with investors today. Some of those cases have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings in West Virginia.
