The Essure System is an implant designed to inhibit fertilization in women by blocking the fallopian tubes and has been utilized by roughly 750,000 patients in the more than 10 years since the procedure was approved by the FDA. Some women have been harmed by the implant however which may have been prevented with better premarketing evaluations and more timely and transparent study results.

In this time we have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements, which means you can trust our firm to recover the damages you need.
Common Complications from Essure Hysteroscopic Implants
Incomplete follow-ups with patients and biased results are blamed for concealing the fact that many women who were looking for medical sterilization did not receive an entirely safe and effective procedure.
Safety concerns with Essure include:
- Incomplete procedures
- Tubal perforations
- Intractable pain and bleeding leading to hysterectomies
- Possible device-related deaths
- Unintended pregnancies
Studies have revealed a 5.7% annual risk of pregnancy remains after hysteroscopic sterilization and hundreds of unintended pregnancies have been reported by Essure patients.
