Since Mirena IUD was introduced to the market in 2000 as a long term contraceptive alternative, studies have emerged outlining the potential side-effects of this device. Complications range from mild to life-threatening, and legal action has been taken against the makers of Mirena for failure to produce a safe and effective product.
Mirena Migration & Perforation
One of the more troublesome complications associated with Mirena is the risk of device migration. Migration occurs when the implanted device loosens from its intended location and moves freely to other locations inside the body. This, in turn, can cause perforation of surrounding tissues and organs. Aside from being extremely painful, perforation can cause serious long term effects and also increases the risk of infection to the area it has damaged. Uterine perforation in particular has been particularly dangerous because it can lead to infertility in some women.
Mirena Revision Surgery
When a device migrates inside the women’s body and pierces organs or tissue, surgery is often required. Doctors must locate the device and either re-position or remove it completely. If serious damage has been done due to perforation by Mirena, additional surgery may be required to correct the problem. Multiple surgeries can be extremely expensive and force the patient to miss extended periods of work, as well as endure emotional distress. These issues caused by Mirena were overlooked by their manufacturer, and legal action has been taken against them to recover compensation for affected families.
