    Surgical Removals of Mirena IUD Increasing

    A number of lawsuits have arisen due to the complications caused by the use of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs).  It has been shown that with the increase in popularity of IUDs, there has been a notable rise of cases where migration of the devices leads to a need for corrective surgery for the removal of such devices.  Besides the obvious negative consequences of the improper placement of IUDs, such as pregnancy, either uterine or ectopic, there lies the further threat of internal bleeding or infections.

    A study, published by Frances R. Mosely et al. (2012) in The Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons which aimed at determining the most successful surgical technique for the removal of migrated IUDs from within the peritoneal cavity determined that laparoscopic surgery was the most commonly used with a high success rate for removal.  The study further indicated that the complications that result from IUD migration into the peritoneal cavity often must involve an initial or even mid-surgery conversion to open surgery was required. 

    Currently, the most popular IUD in the United States is Mirena®, a product manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. that is associated with a high rate of IUD migration and uterine perforation.  Because Bayer Pharmaceuticals has time and again failed to warn the users of its products of the relevant risks, a number of Mirena® migration lawsuits are currently being filed.

     If you have experienced negative side-effects of IUD insertion, or have required surgery due to the use of IUDs, then you may be eligible to file an IUD migration lawsuit.  We urge you to contact our law offices to receive a free consultation to help you determine if you have a case.  You may reach our offices at either by phone, at (888) 315 – 3997, or by e-mail, at justinian@justinian.us.
