"instead, it is individuals, and to the manufacturer as notified side effects and complications. P4 have previously reported that nearly a thousand women have been sterilized with the implant only in sweden, but it is unclear how many of the side effects. A dozen women in the county have, however, been forced to surgically remove their implants – something that Region Skåne is also not notified."
"Several media have previously reported about problems with the implant, a kind of steriliseringsspiral that are no longer used in Swedish health care. In the middle of 2017 ended the manufacturer Bayer Pharma AG, with sales of Essure in the Swedish market, says the Fda on its website."
"the Fda urges health care to report the events."
"– We are dependent on reporting and we are seeing a number in the day so we can only urge health care to report and report every single event, " says Ewa-Lena Hartman, manager for the unit of medical technology at the medical products agency, to the radio."
