What is Essure?
Essure is essentially a small metal spring that is embedded in a patient’s fallopian tubes, to prevent pregnancy. Since its approval in 2002, Bayer, and its subsidiary Conceptus, have produced hundreds of thousands of Essure devices.
Based on thousands of patient complaints, the FDA required a clinical study of Essure, which resulted in a 2016 “black box” warning, as well as a specific pre-implantation acknowledgment signed by each patient, being required for the device. Essure has been removed from several international markets and domestic sales of Essure have been largely discontinued.
Essure Injuries, Side Effects, and Lawsuits
Since its introduction, there have been numerous reports of allergic reaction, pain, bleeding, fracture or migration of the Essure, perforation caused by the Essure, pregnancy or pregnancy complications, and, in some instances, death.
Thousands of claims against the makers of Essure have been consolidated in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the state courts of California and Missouri.
