Experienced Dangerous Medical Device Attorneys Fight for You
Essure is a permanent birth control device that is made up of two metal coils that are placed into the fallopian tubes. As scar tissue forms around the coils, sperm are prevented from reaching the eggs. Although this sounds like a promising alternative to having your tubes tied, thousands of reports indicate the opposite. In some cases, Essure has been shown to result in catastrophic injuries and death as a result of the migration or movement of the coils and perforation of the fallopian tube.
