The Effects of Essure®

The Essure® device is small metal coil that is inserted into a woman's fallopian tube. When scar tissue develops around the coil, it creates a blockage that prevents eggs from being fertilized and the woman from becoming pregnant. However, a number of different unintended medical issues have been now been attributed to Essure®.

One of these issues is the Essure® device material, nickel, which has caused a significant allergic reaction in some patients. Additionally, the polyethylene (PET) fibers on the device (meant to promote the production of scar tissue) has prompted many patients to react as if they are suffering an infection, causing various different autoimmune disorders, neurological problems, kidney, adrenal and thyroid disorders and even cancer. The coils have also been known to become dislodged and require surgery to remove.

Side effects associated with Essure® include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Perforated fallopian tubes
  • Allergic reactions
  • Migration of the implant (and resulting surgery)
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Device breakage and failure (resulting in hysterectomy)

Essure® Lawsuits & Liability

Essure® was approved by the FDA in 2002 following a rigorous PreMarket Approval process. That process, however, relies on data provided by the manufacturer. It is now believed that Bayer provided fraudulent information during this process to ensure that Essure® made it to market and that Bayer itself would be largely protected from any litigation resulting from future injury claims.

In 2013, the FDA reviewed 1,000 reports of adverse reactions to the Essure® device and concluded that it could continue to stay in use with new warning and risk information provided to patients. As of this writing, there are approximately 20,000 known complaints from Essure® patients who have experienced adverse effects. Attorneys and advocates from all over the U.S. continue to work to remove Essure® from the market and hold Bayer accountable.
