Atrium C-QUR Hernia Mesh Causing Pain and Infection
Santa Clara, CA: Allegations that the Atrium C-Qur hernia mesh causes severe health effects including pain and injury in people who’ve undergone the surgery, are being made. Additionally, plaintiffs who have filed lawsuits claim that Atrium was aware of the problems with the mesh but did nothing to warn the medical community.
Specifically, Atrium Medical is being accused of producing a defective product by plaintiffs who state that their C-Qur hernia mesh caused them severe pain, internal injuries, an antibiotic-resistant infection and septic shock, after the patch “folded up.”
As a result, plaintiffs are allegating the C-Qur hernia mesh is not safe to use for its intended purpose.
Approved by the FDA in March 2006, for use in hernia repair, chest wall reconstruction and to repair traumatic or surgical wounds, Atrium C-Qur has subsequently been linked to a host of medical adverse events and side effects.
As a consequence, the FDA issued a warning letter to Atrium in October 2012, citing the company for failing to investigate and respond to complaints about C-QUR mesh infections and failure.
A recently filed complaint describes the associated adverse health effects in the following manner : “The injuries, conditions and complications suffered due to Defendants’ C-Qur Meshes include, but are not limited to, foreign body reaction, rashes, infection, adhesions, organ perforation, inflammation, fistula, mesh erosion, scar tissue, blood loss, dyspareunia, neuropathic and other acute and chronic nerve damage and pain, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, [and] kidney failure. ”
It continues, “[I]n many cases the patients have been forced to undergo intensive medical treatment, including but not limited to operations to locate and remove the C-Qur Mesh, operations to attempt to repair abdominal organs, tissue and nerve damage, the use of narcotics for pain control and other medications, and repeat operations to remove various tissues that are contaminated with the C-Qur Mesh.”
The number of people thought to have suffered adverse events as a result of having the C-QUR Mesh implant is in the thousands.
