Laparoscopic Surgery Required to Remove Mirena IUD

Although the intrauterine device (IUD) may seem like a good alternative and long term contraceptive option, many women experience long lasting and often permanent damage from the defective Mirena IUD. A woman from New York filed a product liability lawsuit because she had to undergo laparoscopic surgery—minimally invasive surgery performed through small incisions in the abdomen. Although doctors conducted placement checks and gave her confirmation that the device was properly situation within her uterus, a few years later she needed the surgery to remove the Mirena IUD which had perforated her uterus and migrated to her abdominal cavity. The complaint she filed states that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals did not adequately warn about the risks and complications associated with the Mirena IUD.
