Endo to dole out $830 million in vaginal mesh lawsuits

The debacle in the U.S. over the thousands of lawsuits filed from women against companies that exposed them to physical maladies after having transvaginal mesh surgery is coming to an expensive head for Endo Health Solutions. 

The company has reported that it will pay about $830 million to settle around 20,000 lawsuits from women who claim that — after they were implanted with vaginal meshes — the mesh implants eroded and left the women incontinent, made it difficult for them to have sex, and introduced a variety of other ailments.
