Defective Medical Device Lawsuits
A product is considered defective when it fails to perform in the standard for which it was designed. Products can be defective when they have a design defect, manufacturing defect or when there are insufficient warning labels. Design defects are applicable to the overall design of the product. In other words a product that has a design flaw will impact all similarly designed products. A design defect can have serious issues with regards to the overall usability or functionality of the product. Design defects are considered some of the most dangerous defects because they apply to all products. Manufacturing defects are not blanket defects and they are more specific or isolated. They occur when the actual product was defective due to some error in manufacturing. Failure to warn defects occur when the manufacturer does not warn of particular issues with the device. In Mirena IUD cases there is almost a clear indication of failure to warn. Manufacturers did not warn of a potential device migration risk or perforation of interior vaginal wall as a result of the device. Instead manufacturers only touted the benefits of the device, while negating potential complications.
Mirena IUD Device Migration
What is device migration? Mirena IUD devices have a tendency to move around while inside. This migration can pose serious issues. One of the main issues associated with migration is perforation of the interior vaginal wall. Perforation is small holes across the interior vaginal wall caused by the movement of the Mirena IUD device. The reason the device moves is part of what makes it defective and the fact that many recipients were not told of this issue further increases the defect argument. Device migration can occur when you have aggressive or sudden movement or participate in any type of exercise. When the device migrates it will essentially start poking or stabbing at the inside vaginal wall. These small holes can be painful and lead to sudden infection. However the infections rarely subside because they are almost always aggravated or reoccurring because of the device migration.
