Endo Stops Making AMS Transvaginal Mesh

Eden Prarie, MN: Endo International is closing its Astora Women’s Health device unit, the company that sells the now-defunct American Medical Systems (AMS) transvaginal mesh implants for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or pelvic organ prolapse (POP). Endo, which bought AMS in 2011 for $2.9 billion, said it is shutting down transvaginal mesh production due to soaring legal costs and settlement payouts awarded by juries to injured women in the United States.
