The product liability attorneys of Murray Guari Trial Attorneys are investigating claims against Essure permanent birth control, which the device is alleged to cause permanent life-changing injuries and disabilities.
Essure is manufactured by Bayer as a form of permanent birth control (hysteroscopic sterilization procedure). Essure consists of two flexible metal coils (nickel, titanium and polyethylene fibers) implanted in the fallopian tubes that induce scarring to block the tubes and prevent fertilization. Essure is intended to be nonreversible.
Alleged side effects and injuries from the use of Essure included:
- Persistent pain
- Device or component migration
- Perforation of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes
- Intra-abdominal or irregular bleeding
- Allergic or hypersensitivity reactions
- Unwanted pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy
- Fetal Death
- Surgical removal of the device
Essure was approved for use in the United States in 2002. In 2016, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) required a new “black box warning” label for Essure – “designed to call attention to serious or life-threatening risks.” The FDA also called upon Bayer to conduct surveillance that will assess “risks of the device in a real-world environment.” THE FDA will use the results of that study to “determine what, if any, further actions related to Essure are needed to protect public health.”
