Louisville Mirena® IUD Injury Lawyers
Mirena® Intrauterine Device Linked to False Brain Tumor Symptoms
A popular form of birth control due to its longevity and convenience, the Mirena® intrauterine device (IUD) is a small T-shaped device that is inserted in the uterus. It is meant to last for up to five years and works by slowly releasing a hormone called levonorgestrel that prevents pregnancy. Unfortunately, Mirena® has been linked to serious side effects. One of these is an increased risk of pseudo tumor cerebri, or false brain tumor. This condition is characterized by an increase in pressure around the brain. It causes symptoms similar to those of a brain tumor, hence the name “pseudotumor.”
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri while using Mirena®, Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers is here to help you. We are currently investigating cases involving pseudotumors in patients using the Mirena® IUD and can review your legal options with you. We believe in holding manufacturers of medical devices and drug companies accountable for releasing unsafe products to unsuspecting patients, and our Louisville Mirena® IUD attorneys have the resources and know-how to handle these complex cases.
