Atrium C-Qur Hernia Patch Issues
Atrium C-Qur Hernia Patch went into the market in 2005. The patch contains a polypropylene mesh with an outer coating gel, referred to as the O3FA layer, that is made of omega 3 fatty acids. Since its introduction, many individuals across the United States have experienced complications possibly due to the design of the mesh. Individuals have reported suffering from problems such as bowel issues, allergic reactions, infections, erosions, and issues with surgical wounds.
The manufacturer appears to have been aware or should have been aware of the risks of the Atrium C-Qur Hernia Patch. The manufacturer, however, continued to sell and market the unsafe product without supplying sufficient warnings.
Recall of Ethicon Physiomesh
Following data released from foreign registries which showed a higher number than expected of individuals who suffered hernia mesh complications, Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, removed Ethicon Physiomesh from the market in May 2016. Complications reported in foreign registries included necessary revision surgery to remove the hernia mesh and hernia recurrence.
The manufacturer has stated that it does not plan to sell Ethicon Physiomesh again. As the product was first introduced in 2010, there are still thousands of individuals who received Ethicon Physiomesh during its six-year time on the market that may have suffered severe pain or complications as a result.
