Defective Hernia Mesh Causing Severe Side Effects

Atrium C-Qur was available for use between 2006 and 2015, in hernia and soft tissue repair procedures – typically for laparoscopically. It is a polypropylene surgical implant manufactured by Atrium Medical Group. While surgical meshes are intended to provide permanent reinforcement to soft tissue, the Atrium C-Qur resulted in dangerous side effects for many.

Atrium C-Qur has been linked to:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Rejection
  • Foreign body response
  • Rash
  • Adhesion (due to Atrium C-Qur mesh connecting to the bowel)
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Organ Perforation
  • Revision surgery

The Omega-3 fatty acid (O3FA) coating used on the Atrium C-Qur mesh is the primary impediment. Soon after the mesh was on the market, patients reported having severe allergic reactions to the O3FA coating. Other reports showed the O3FA coating detaching from the mesh after it was implanted causing an immune response and degradation of the mesh.

The FDA issued a warning to Atrium concerning the sterilization and packaging for the C-Qur devices due to the complaints of infection caused by the mesh. Atrium ignored the FDA warnings and continued to manufacturer the Atrium C-Qur mesh. In 2015, the FDA got an injunction, which forced Atrium to temporarily halt production of the mesh.
