Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh

Atrium C-Qur hernia mesh was initially brought to market in 2005. The product line eventually grew to include the following devices:

  • Atrium C-Qur Mesh
  • Atrium C-Qur Mosaic
  • Atrium C-Qur TacShield
  • Atrium C-Qur V-Patch
  • Atrium C-Qur Centrifx
  • Atrium C-Qur FX Mesh (formerly C-Qur Lite)

C-Qur mesh is constructed of polypropylene mesh, with an outer coating of gel made from omega 3 fatty acids, called the O3FA layer. This coating purportedly reduces the risk of adhesions between the hernia patch and the intestines, and allows for better fixation of the device to the abdominal wall. However, C-Qur products were cleared for sale via the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s 510(k) program, which allows a device manufacturer to forgo human testing if it can be shown that the new product is substantially equivalent in design to another device that was already approved by the agency.

Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Studies and side effects

atrium-c-qur-Hernia-Mesh-lawsuit-1A study published in a 2009 issue of the British Journal of Surgery suggested that the outer coating on C-Qur mesh products may degrade over time, increasing the risk of serious bowel injuries. On 2012, the FDA sent warning letter to Atrium Medical regarding a failure to address reports of problems with some of its medical devices. Agency inspectors uncovered a number of complaints involving infections and other complications related to C-Qur hernia mesh that may not have been properly investigated by the company.

Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Recall

A year later, Atrium Medical recalled a small number of C-Qur hernia patches after it was determined that the coating on the mesh may adhere to the inner packaging due to high humidity exposure. The FDA classified the action as a Class II medical device recall, which indicates that the affected hernia mesh may cause temporary or medically-reversible health issues. However, plaintiffs who have filed Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh lawsuits against Atrium Medical claim that the company has conducted “stealth recalls” of multiple C-Qur products simply by halting production, and without notifying doctors, patients or the FDA.
