- Abdominal Pain
- Allergic Reactions
- Mesh Erosion Or Failure
- Revision Surgery
Atrium C-Qur Problems
Atrium C-Qur Hernia Repair Mesh was first introduced in 2005, involving a polypropylene mesh with an outer coating gel made from omega 3 fatty acids, called the O3FA layer. However, a large number of individuals nationwide have suffered infections, allergic reactions, bowel damage, erosion, surgical wound complications and other problems, which may be related to the design of the mesh.
It appears that the manufacturer knew or should have known about the risk of Atrium C-Qur hernia repair complications, yet continued to market and sell this dangerous product without providing adequate warnings.
Ethicon Physiomesh Recall
In May 2016, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon subsidiary removed Physiomesh hernia repair mesh from the market, after data from foreign registries highlighted a higher-than-expected number of individuals experienced hernia mesh complications, including hernia recurrence and revision surgery to remove the hernia mesh.
Although Ethicon Physiomesh was first introduced in 2010, the manufacturer has indicated that it does not intend to sell the product again. However, it was implanted in thousands of individuals who may have experienced severe pain and complications due to the manufacturing and design of the product.
Hernia Repair Mesh Class Action Lawyers
The hernia repair lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing whether former recipients of the mesh may be entitled to financial compensation through a class action lawsuit or individual injury case.
