NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
R. Fleishman, a personal
injury attorney with the national plaintiffs' law firm Lieff
Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, has released a video on YouTube (News - Alert)
discussing the alleged serious side effects of Mirena, an intrauterine
device (IUD) used by millions of American women. Ms. Fleishman also
summarizes the claims brought by injured women in lawsuits against Bayer
Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Mirena. Watch the video

Over 45,000 adverse events from Mirena have been reported to U.S. health
regulators since Mirena's introduction to the market. The most serious
Mirena risks and side effects include:
uterine perforation (the IUD tears through the cervix or the wall of
ectopic pregnancy (when the embryo implants outside the uterine
risk of sterility
"Uterne perforation is a serious injury that many women with the Mirena
IUD have suffered," stated Ms. Fleishman. "The Mirena IUD can move
within their uterus, rip through the cervix or wall of the uterus, and
enter the abdominal cavity, sometimes years after the IUD was properly
Women who have suffered serious Mirena complications and pain have
charged that Bayer failed to disclose adequately to them and their
physicians the risk of migration of the Mirena after insertion. The
lawsuits also charge that the Mirena IUD poses serious side effects and
is a defective and dangerous medical device.
