The Majzlin spring revisited.

B. D. Weiss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Majzlin spring is a stainless steel intrauterine device that was used by about 100,000 women between 1967 and 1973. Although the device was withdrawn from the market, some women still have this IUD in place. Many physicians have little knowledge of the Majzlin spring and its potentially serious complications, which include bleeding, infection, perforation and difficult removal.
