Essure– Essure is a contraceptive implant manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Essure has been on the market for more than a decade. Essure “is frequently pitched to women as the only non-surgical option for permanent birth control,” and “consists of two nickel-titanium coils inserted into the fallopian tubes, where they spur growth of scar tissue and block sperm from fertilizing a woman’s eggs.” However, the FDA reported that some women may be at risk for serious complications.
FDA Warning – The FDA has announced a “black box” warning on the Essure contraceptive implant, however, the device is still on the market. Thousands of complaints from women have been reported, stating they’ve experienced chronic pain, bleeding, and other health problems from usingthe Essure birth control implant. Now, the FDA has stated that they will add the boxed warning (which is the most serious type of warning) in order to alert doctors and patients to the problems that have been reported with this nickel-titanium implant manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Essure Lawsuits Update
A federal judge in Pennsylvania, Judge John Padova, ruled in March of 2016 that five Pennsylvania Essure plaintiffs could proceed with their lawsuits. The women sued Bayer over injuries that were caused by the “permanent” birth control device. According to an article posted in Legal Reader, “While Judge Padova found that some of the plaintiffs’ claims were preempted and dismissed them per Bayer’s motion, he also ruled that the premarket approval (PMA) status that currently protects Bayer and Essure from litigation did not prevent the plaintiffs from pursuing certain of their claims.” “One claim, for fraudulent misrepresentation, was not pled sufficiently, according to Judge Padova and was thus dismissed. However, the plaintiffs’ negligent misrepresentation claim was preserved and leave given to the plaintiffs to refile their suits with more information.”
Approximately 750K women have been implanted with Essure since 2002, and a number of women have had to undergo surgery to replace or remove the device. Some women have had to have a hysterectomy (which is the only way to ensure complete removal of Essure).
