There is speculation that Bayer’s contraceptive device notorious for uterine perforation and device migration may seriously impact brain health. Women who have used the device in question, the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD), have filed lawsuits against Bayer alleging that they sustained brain injuries, specifically a health complication known as pseudotumor cerebri, after using the product.
The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) recently reviewed a request to consolidate Mirena IUD lawsuits involving claims of brain injury into its own multidistrict litigation (MDL).
With fewer Mirena IUD brain injury lawsuits compared to those lawsuits claiming uterine perforation, device migration, organ damage, and similar injuries, the JPML decided against forming a separate federal MDL for the lawsuits on brain injuries.
