Dangerous & Defective Drug Attorneys in New York
Essure is a spring-like device implanted into fallopian tubes used for permanent contraception, which is achieved by scarring of the fallopian tubes. Unfortunately, migration, perforation, organ injury and other painful side effects have been reported at a high rate leading to a petition being reviewed by the FDA and the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH). Essure was created in 2002 and is sold by Conceptus Inc., a subsidiary of Bayer AG after a recent corporate purchase.

Problems Associated with Essure
Essure, just like Bayer's Mirena intrauterine device, is now implicated in dangerous complications of migration, perforation of organs, excessive bleeding and permanent pain. Bayer markets Essure as only requiring a simple ten minute outpatient procedure, but the side effects could last a lifetime.
Injuries Associated With Essure:
- Perforation of pelvic organs
- Migration of the device
- Surgical removal of the device
- Damaged organs requiring surgical repair
- Severe pain
- Excessive bleeding
