Essure is a permanent form of female sterilization, which was first introduced in 2002. However, it has becoming increasingly clear over the past decade that the manufacturer failed to adequately study the device or the long-term health risks of Essure procedures.
The device is made up of flexible coils that are inserted into the fallopian tubes, which are designed to cause scar tissue to develop that blocks the tubes and present insemination.
While the Essure implant is designed to remain in place within the fallopian tubes, providing long-term sterilization and birth control for the rest of a woman’s life, thousands of problems have been reported involving women who suffered potential Essure side effects.
In September 2015, the FDA convened a panel of independent experts in response to growing concerns about the risk of Essure complications, hearing testimony from a number of women and critics who suggested that an Essure recall should be issued to remove the birth control implant from the market.
The FDA is not expected to make a final decision about any regulatory actions that may be necessary until the end of February 2016. However, our Essure injury lawyers are closely monitoring this situation and providing free consultations for women nationwide.
All Essure cases will be handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning there are never out-of-pocket expenses and no fees unless a recovery is obtained.
