Why was Essure approved by the FDA?
Unfortunately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regularly approves medical devices that end up being defective. But you can’t always blame the FDA. Defective medical device makers have in the past failed to report potential side effects and complications to the FDA in their research. There have been cases where medical device makers even conceal facts from the FDA, which means the FDA is approving a product without all the facts.
When the FDA receives enough complaints on a medical device, they begin investigating the product. Women began reporting Essure problems right after it hit the market. The FDA investigated and eventually pulled the product from the market. Essure was implanted in women from 2002-2018.
