Joint replacements are the #1 expenditure of Medicare. The process of approving these medical devices is flawed according to the Institute of Medicine. It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

Study: 50% Harmed Women Have Complete Recovery When Bayer Essure Coils Removed

Results of National Center for Health Research study of 1104 women with Essure problems

2015    FiDA highlight
 86% reported pain (mostly pelvic or abdominal)
34% reported excessive bleeding – some bled every day of the month instead of a regular period
22% fatigue
16% hair loss
12% hysterectomy
12% depression
7% allergy

These are all women reporting serious complications, not a random sample of Essure patients.

About 35% had Essure removed and about half of those had a complete recovery.  Only 5% of those who had them removed reported no improvement in symptoms.
