Atrium mesh injury lawsuits
According to an adverse event report submitted to the FDA, Atrium’s Prolite mesh, used for hernia repair, caused the patient to suffer severe nerve damage, genital numbness, loss of bladder and urethral sensation and permanent sexual impairment. The Prolite device is just one of several surgical mesh products regularly used for soft tissue and hernia repair.
Atrium’s portfolio of biomedical products include the CQUR line of mesh devices – indicated for hernia repair, surgical wounds, chest wall reconstruction, and other procedures requiring tissue reinforcement. Several complaints regarding the Atrium CQUR Mesh reveal the pain, suffering and traumatic outcomes shared by patients implanted with the devices.
Similar to vaginal mesh complications cited by thousands of women and the FDA, hernia mesh repair carries its own risks of major infections, disabling pain, corrective surgeries and extensive hospitalization.
“Pathology of the excised mesh showed ulceration, granulation tissue, and intense acute and chronic inflammation,” states a recent complaint involving Atrium CQUR Mesh. Other patients have experienced excruciating abdominal and groin pain, erythema, cellulitis of the wound, seroma and peritoneal abscesses requiring hospitalization, and emergency mesh excision. With complications this severe, patients are often forced to undergo multiple follow-up surgeries and take several rounds of antibiotics and steroids. Many of these patients now live a life filled with anxiety, pain, anger and desperation as they struggle to find justice.
Medical device manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are safe and effective for their intended purpose and fully inform consumers about known risks and side effects. When this duty is breached, they may face liability for economic and non-economic losses, including pain and suffering, medical bills, emotional distress, loss of consortium and other damages.
