Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm that protects the rights of those harmed by defective medical devices, has filed a lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court on behalf of an Indiana woman who suffered permanent and physical injuries allegedly caused by the Mirena IUD. The lawsuit names Bayer Corporation and Berlex Laboratories, Inc., as defendants.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was implanted with the Mirena IUD birth control device in March 2009. In September 2010, she was to have the device removed however, her physician was unable to locate the Mirena IUD in her uterus. One week later, a CT scan revealed the Mirena IUD had migrated to her left abdominal wall. The plaintiff had to then undergo a laparoscopic operation to remove the device.

The lawsuit further states that the manufacturers do not warn consumers and physicians about spontaneous migration of the IUD, only that it can migrate if the uterus is perforated when the device is inserted. The plaintiff also alleges that the defendants have historically understated the potential complications of the device, while overstating its benefits.

Mirena IUD was approved by the FDA in 2000, and in 2009, the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications found that Bayer’s Simple Style Program for the Mirena IUD made unsubstantiated claims, and failed to warn of the drug’s side effects.
