Patients who suffer from hernias or wounds caused by trauma or surgery, require special medical devices to reinforce proper repair. A synthetic mesh-like material can be used to reduce the likelihood of a hernia returning in the future and aiding in the reconstruction of a traumatic laceration. Unfortunately, a number of individuals who have undergone medical correction involving the product, C-Qur Mesh, have been subjected to a great amount of pain including internal lesions, infections and mesh failure.
Atrium Medical Corporation, the manufacturer of C-Qur mesh has failed to disclose knowledge about the probable risks associated with this device. As a result of this, those who are suffering from the dangerous effects, are qualified for financial compensation.
Reports of injuries due to C-Qur Mesh include:
-Obstruction in foreign parts of the body
-Dissipation of adhesion over time after implantation
-Abnormal liver function
-Rejection of device
C-Qur mesh was approved in 2006 by the FDA but only through a program known as a Premarket Notification (PMN), otherwise known as 510k program. Because it was accepted by this class, it was not subjected to clinical testing prior to being sold to healthcare providers. The polypropylene mesh was said to be just as safe and effective as other available hernia mesh devices already on the market were, yet accurate testing and data were not conducted.
