What Are Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh Implants?
The C-Qur hernia mesh implant is a medical device that is made by Atrium Medical Corporation. Doctors in the United States primarily use it in hernia repair surgeries to help strengthen damaged or weakened tissue.
Hernias generally happen when an organ or a piece of fatty tissue passes through a weak spot or an opening in the surrounding connective tissue – causing it to become damaged.
Atrium Medical Corporation designed the C-Qur implant to be easy for physicians to attach to this weakened tissue without needing to make an excessively large incision.
The C-Qur hernia mesh implant was initially approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March 2006. The product has been used regularly in hospitals throughout the nation ever since.
Why Are Atrium Hernia Mesh Implants Dangerous?
Atrium Medical Corporation manufactures its C-Qur hernia mesh implants from a material called polypropylene. This polymer is cheap, which makes it an attractive option for companies who wish to boost their profits.
Unfortunately, polypropylene can cause patients to experience a range of painful and debilitating side effects after their surgery. Studies have found that the use of this plastic in hernia mesh implants can cause health issues like adhesion and bowel obstruction.
Rather than manufacture their C-Qur hernia mesh implants from a safer or less risky material, Atrium Medical Corp chooses to coat its polypropylene devices in Omega 3 fatty acids.
The company claims that this coating can eliminate the dangers associated with polypropylene while also promoting healing and preventing inflammation.
Over the years, however, many patients have found that Atrium’s products are not quite as safe as they claim.
Countless people have developed mild to severe allergic reactions to the Omega 3 fatty acids – leaving them in a great deal of pain and making them more susceptible to infections.
The Omega 3 fatty acids do not appear to remain on Atrium’s hernia mesh implants permanently, either. During the lifetime of the product, countless patients have had the coating wear off.
When this scenario happens, they can begin to experience the side effects associated with polypropylene.
Have you begun to endure painful or life-altering side effects after having an Atrium C-Qur hernia mesh device implanted in your body?
If so, please do not hesitate to reach out to the experienced legal team at Rosen Injury Lawyers.
We might be able to use our knowledge of state and federal law to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
What Are the Side Effects of Atrium Surgical Mesh Implants?
The polypropylene base material and Omega 3 fatty acid coating in Atrium Medical Corporation’s C-Qur surgical mesh implants can cause patients to endure a wide range of debilitating side effects in the weeks, months, and years after their procedure.
The most common health issues found in people who receive C-Qur mesh implants are:
- Neurological changes
- Allergic reactions
- Organ damage and perforations
- Skin rashes
- Excessive bleeding
- Chronic pain
- Intestinal blockage
- Fluid buildup
- Internal and external infections
When patients develop these side effects, they generally require medical intervention to lessen the pain or to save their lives. The precise nature of this care can vary significantly from one case to the next. Some patients require medication, while others need surgery.
These treatments usually do not come cheap – even for people who have excellent health insurance. As such, it is not at all unusual for people who have adverse reactions to Atrium hernia mesh to rack up thousands of dollars in medical expenses.
If you are experiencing chronic pain, fluid buildup, or intestinal blockages after having an Atrium hernia mesh device implanted in your body, please get in touch with Rosen Injury Lawyers as soon as you can.
We will review the details of your case and let you know if you might be able to claim any compensation by filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
You can reach us via phone or email – whichever is more convenient for you.
