Atrium C-QUR, Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Allegedly Cause Severe Intestinal Complications

Our attorneys are currently investigating claims that certain hernia surgical mesh implants made by medical manufacturing companies Atrium Medical and Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon are defective and have caused serious injuries to hernia surgery patients.

If you have received surgical mesh during a recent hernia repair surgery, you could be at risk of adverse medical effects and complications including bowel obstruction, mesh adhesion to tissue, hernia recurrence, and more. Contact us to learn if you could be eligible for compensation for suffering from these serious injuries.

What is a Hernia Mesh and Why Are People Reporting Problems with It?

Patients harmed by a defective hernia mesh often must undergo repeated surgeries to remove the device.

A hernia mesh is a medical device used to support weakened or damaged tissue following a surgery to repair a hernia.

Both Atrium’s C-QUR and Ethicon’s Physiomesh hernia mesh implants have reportedly caused serious injuries in patients who underwent hernia surgery — ranging from pain and infection to adhesion to tissue and bowel obstruction. There are currently about 20 Physiomesh and 24 C-QUR hernia mesh lawsuits filed in federal court.

Ethicon’s Physiomesh Lawsuits Allege the Product Caused Permanent Injuries

Doctors implanted a Florida woman with an Ethicon Physiomesh flexible composite mesh during hernia repair surgery and she suffered permanent injuries as a result, according to the lawsuit Quinn v Ethicon, Inc. filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

The suit claims that Physiomesh as a product is defective, prone to becoming embedded in human tissue over time, and is “inappropriately designed and engineered for use in hernia repair,” creating an unreasonable risk of injury to patients.

Atrium C-QUR Mesh Lawsuits Allege the Mesh’s Gel Coating Is Defective

One Georgia woman suffered seroma (a buildup of fluids in the body) and nerve damage to the abdomen after receiving a defective C-QUR mesh implant, according to the lawsuit Bryant v. Atrium, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. As a result of the mesh and the consequent removal of the implant, the plaintiff allegedly missed six weeks of work and develop scar tissue buildup in her abdomen.

The suit claims the C-QUR Mesh’s Omega 3 gel coating made from fish oil is a major defect in the design of the implant, because it can cause the implant to curl and deform over time, leading to serious inflammation and injuries.

FAQ

Hernia Mesh FAQs

  • Have Any Hernia Mesh Product Recalls Been Issued?

    Yes. In 2013, the FDA issued a Class II recall on one of Atrium’s C-QUR hernia mesh products, after finding that the product’s fish oil coating could peel off and stick to the inside of its package when exposed to excessive humidity. This is the same fish oil coating that is alleged to cause the mesh to curl and deform in the body.

    Ethicon voluntarily recalled certain models of the Physiomesh in 2016 after studies revealed high hernia recurrence rates in patients with that particular hernia mesh implanted, according to medical device business journal MassDevice.

  • Am I Eligible for a Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?

    If you have undergone hernia repair surgery and received a hernia mesh implant, our attorneys want to hear from you, even if you’re unsure what type of hernia mesh you have. You may qualify for a hernia mesh lawsuit if you meet the following criteria:

    • You underwent a laparoscopic hernia repair surgery that used hernia surgical mesh.
    • The surgery took place on or after Jan. 1, 2008.
    • You had or have scheduled hernia revision surgery.

    Be sure to record any adverse symptoms you may have experienced after your hernia surgery. This information will be important if you choose to participate in a lawsuit.

  • What Can I Collect in a Lawsuit?

    By participating in a lawsuit against Atrium and Ethicon, you may be able to receive compensation for past and future medical expenses, loss of income, and other damages. Your participation will also serve to hold these medical manufacturers responsible for putting defective products out on the market.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
