2019 Claims Against Manufacturer Rise - October 2019

Death Toll and Dangerous Side Effects Rise - May 2019

The FDA stated that they have received 2,230 cases of pregnancies in women who had the Essure® device implanted. Additionally, 15 adult deaths have also been reported to the FDA.

Bayer® Discontinues All Sales of Essure® - July 2018

After thousands of reports emerged of serious injuries related to Essure®, Bayer® agreed to pull the dangerous device from the market. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb stated that “The device has been associated with serious risks including persistent pain, perforation of the uterus and fallopian tubes, and the migration of the coils into the pelvis or abdomen”.

Hazard Alert Issued for Essure® - August 2017

Nearly 15,000 Cases of Essure®-Related Injuries - December 2016

The FDA stated that they had received 14,919 reports related to Essure®. Many of these adverse events were reported to the FDA by the device’s manufacturer - Bayer®.

Responding to claims of injuries, the FDA ordered Bayer Pharmaceutical® to re-do their post-market study. The agency became suspicious of the first test results after Essure® executives stated that “less than 1% of cases report pain, bleeding, or device migration”, a statement that the FDA did not believe.

Every 5 years, the FDA requires that all devices perform a Five-year post-market study. These studies aim to evaluate the effectiveness and side effects associated with a device. An FDA advisory committee soon ruled that the Essure® device must clearly state that it is a “surgical device”. Additionally, the FDA asked that Essure® come with more thorough instructions and follow-up consultations.
