Women who undergo sterilization with Essure implantable coils are 10 times as likely to need repeat operations a year later than those who have tubal sterilization surgery, a new study suggests. The reoperation rates for both methods were low - 2 percent of Essure patients and 0.2 percent of tubal surgery patients - and both had a rate of unintended pregnancy of about 1 percent, according to the Weill Cornell Medical Center analysis, published this week in the journal BMJ. The study comes less than a month after a U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory panel met to discuss questions about the safety and effectiveness of Essure.

Now, the city no longer tickets pet owners who don't fix their dogs as long as those dogs are licensed.
