What are Essure Implants?
Essure is a small permanent coil implant which is used to sterilise women. The implant is placed into the fallopian tubes where scar tissue develops to prevent eggs from reaching the womb. Essure was first approved in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 before being approved for use in the UK by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) in 2009.
Complications for women have included: -
- Chronic and debilitating pain
- Inflammatory conditions
- Perforated fallopian tubes
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Persistent abdominal pain
- Irregular periods
- Perforation of the uterus or fallopian tubes due to implant migration
- The requirement for a full hysterectomy to remove the device
The British Medical Journal has indicated that women with an Essure device are 10 times more likely to need a second operation, compared to those who had other forms of sterilisation.
In August 2019, the manufacturer, Bayer, instructed hospitals to stop using the Essure device. Although there had been a growing number of complaints, Bayer insisted the product was being withdrawn for commercial reasons. However, the UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is monitoring the issue and suggests women affected by Essure report adverse effects through their website.
