Medical Device Litigation for Complications from Essure

Essure, a medical device that offers permanent sterilization to women, has been linked to an array of serious and unexpected side effects. Essure complications include chronic pain, perforation of the uterus and fallopian tubes, irregular bleeding, and allergic or hypersensitivity reactions. Some women report becoming pregnant long after Essure has been implanted; others have undergone one or more surgeries to repair Essure problems or have the permanent device removed.

Critics says Essure problems should have been detected before the product was approved by the FDA in 2002, and point to inadequate pre-market testing as the cause of countless Essure injuries. More than a decade later, after well over 750,000 women had been implanted with the product, the Essure warning label was expanded to include a Black Box warning listing persistent pain and tissue perforation as possible Essure side effects. Once sold around the world, Essure has been discontinued in the EU and Canada, and an Essure ban is in place in Brazil. A product of Bayer HealthCare, Essure yielded more than $47 billion in sales in 2014.

Still in use in the United States, the safety of Essure is under FDA investigation after thousands of women have filed Essure complaints for pain, internal injuries, allergic reactions, and pregnancy. Our attorneys handling national Essure lawsuits against Bayer are now offering free, no-obligation case reviews to women and family members of women who have been harmed by Essure. If you or a loved one has experienced Essure side effects, you may be entitled to compensation for the resultant medical expenses, pain and suffering.

Essure Complications

According to thousands of complaints filed with the FDA, Essure complications are common. Due to the device's tendency to migrate or move from the implantation site, Essure injuries include damage to the uterus and fallopian tubes caused by perforation, chronic pain and intra-abdominal and irregular bleeding, and allergic or hypersensitivity reactions. For more than a decade, consumers were not warned of the risk of Essure problems. Read full Essure complications information.

Essure FDA Warning

In 2013, after the device had been on the market for more than a decade and had been implanted in a quarter of a million women, an Essure Black Box warning was adopted by the FDA. The Essure FDA warning cautions women of possible side effects including chronic pain and perforation. As a result of serious complications, an Essure FDA investigation is underway. Many national health organizations around the world have moved beyond stringent Essure warnings to ban the device in recent years. Read full FDA Essure warning information.
