Essure

Essure is a birth control device that is permanently implanted into a woman’s reproductive system. The device became popular because it was easy to install and did not require surgery in an operating room. The Essure device is composed of metal coils which are placed into the fallopian tubes to create a blockage intended to prevent pregnancy. Unfortunately, Essure has been linked to dangerous side effects and its manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, announced it would cease Essure sales in the United States in 2018. Essure has been linked to the following symptoms and side effects:

  • Abdominal pain

  • Hypersensitivity and allergic reactions

  • Fatigue and headaches

  • Internal bleeding and hemorrhages

  • Menstrual irregularities

  • Weight fluctuation

  • Unintended pregnancy

  • Miscarriage

  • Uterus and fallopian perforation and pain

  • Device migration

  • Device breakage

  • Hysterectomies

Hernia Mesh

If you or a loved one has suffered from a hernia mesh implant we may help you recover your losses! Please call us today at (305) 800 – 8678.

If you are feeling intense pain because of a hernia mesh you may be eligible for compensation through a lawsuit. Hernia mesh implants have become a widely popular solution for patients facing any kind of hernia but also have huge consequences for your health if installed incorrectly.

If you had a C-QUR mesh, or any kind of Ethicon product or a any other surgical mesh installed and are feeling pain, we may be able to get you compensation because these products are known to degrade over time. As the material wears, this often leads to the mesh shrinking, which cause irritation and inflammation in the the surrounding area and provoking an immune response.

Common Hernia Mesh Injuries and Complications

  • Infection
  • Bowel Obstruction

  • Perforation of organ and tissues

  • Pain

  • Migration (the implant moving from its original position)

  • Adhesion (scar-like tissue that sticks together)

“Studies found some of the materials to actually be rather unsafe for humans or drastically degrade in quality over time. For instance, the C-QUR mesh is coated in a fish oil substance, which has led to some patients facing severe allergic reactions and an alarming rate of substantial adhesions, or abnormal scar tissue sticking together tissues and organs.”

IVC Filters

IVC filters are blood clot filters that are implanted in the inferior vena cava, a major vein that carries blood from the lower body back to the heart. They are designed to catch blood clots and prevent the blood clots from traveling to the lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism. Unfortunately, many of the filters are not safe and have dangerous side effects. Often times the filter needs to be removed in a revision surgery to prevent further complications and sometimes the filter can’t be removed at all due to complications. Our law firm is assisting individuals that are experiencing the following symptoms and side effects due to the use of an IVC filter:

  • Device migration
  • Device perforation of tissue, organs, and vessels
  • Device breakage
  • Emergency removal

  • Hypersensitivity and allergic reactions

  • Internal bleeding and hemorrhages

  • Device breakage

  • Infections

  • Pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

  • Pain

Specifically, we are reviewing cases involving filter products manufactured by Cook, Bard, Cordis, and other companies.
