Atrium C-QUR Mesh: A Full Line of Defective Products
C-QUR Mesh is a polypropylene monofilament medical implant manufactured by Atrium Medical Corporation (a subsidiary of Maquet Getinge Group). The Atrium C-QUR line features several mesh products indicated for hernia repair, including:
- C-QUR Mesh
- C-QUR Mosaic
- C-QUR Tacshield
- C-QUR V-Patch
- C-QUR Centrifix
- C-QUR FX Mesh
C-QUR mesh products all contain tiny holes throughout, like window screens, and are used to push herniated tissue back in place and reinforce tissue walls around the repaired hernias. All of the mesh devices in the C-QUR line contain a gel coating of Omega 3 fatty acids. This coating is one of Atrium’s biggest marketing focuses, as the corporation touts the coating’s supposed ability to minimize tissue embedment with the mesh. But in reality, the coating has caused numerous problems for patients, including severe allergic reactions.
Also, patients who receive C-QUR implants experience painful inflammation associated with a rapid immune response to the plastic mesh material. The patients’ bodies understand that the implants are foreign and immediately try to protect against the devices by encasing them in rigid scar tissue. Because of the permeable nature of the mesh, inflamed scar tissue grows into and all around the implants, making them nearly impossible to remove after patients begin to experience problems.
Our C-QUR clients report severe complications and side effects from their implants, including:
- Chronic pain
- Bowel obstruction
- Foreign body reaction
- Allergic reactions
- Tearing or ripping of the mesh
- Erosion of the mesh
- Folding or migration of the mesh
- Shrinkage of the mesh
We are standing up to the C-QUR manufacturers for placing people at risk by selling these dangerous implants, and we will keep fighting until our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries.

C-QUR Mesh Recall Information
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement in August 2009 in which it indicated that Atrium had implemented a voluntary recall of its C-QUR Edge and C-QUR V-Patch implants. The recall was linked to issues with the implants’ coating when exposed to humidity for long spans of time. Nevertheless, Atrium and the FDA never completely removed these two products from the market. Interestingly, however, sparse information is currently available pertaining to the C-QUR Edge, which could mean Atrium has been quietly withdrawn it from the market.
Several years after the 2009 recall announcement, in April 2017, the FDA published a statement generally addressing hernia mesh implants. In this statement, the FDA said that pain, infection, hernia recurrence, adhesions, and bowel obstructions were the most frequently reported problems related to hernia mesh implants. The FDA did not name any particular implants as causing widespread issues, and no recalls of C-QUR products have occurred as a result of the FDA’s findings.
It is clear, however, that hernia mesh, and specifically C-QUR mesh, has caused numerous debilitating complications for men and women across the country. Our firm is actively pursuing litigation to hold Atrium accountable.
Atrium C-QUR Mesh Litigation News
C-QUR hernia mesh cases have been centralized into one federal court in what is known as a multidistrict litigation. A multidistrict litigation (MDL) is essentially a grouping of many cases that involve the same product. MDLs allow plaintiffs and defendants to have case issues decided uniformly by one judge and eliminate a lot of work that would otherwise be duplicated in cases around the country.
The C-QUR MDL is located in the U.S. District Court of New Hampshire and overseen by District Court Judge Landya B. McCafferty. Judge McCafferty will preside over discovery matters, hearings, scheduling, and the first trials in the litigation, which are called “bellwether trials.”
To date, no C-QUR settlements have taken place, but our firm is seeking compensation for every way our clients have been injured. We will pursue damages for the suffering you have experienced, including:
- Financial damages, like medical expenses, lost wages, lost income, lost earning capacity;
- Physical damages, including all your mesh injuries;
- Mental and emotional damages related to your mesh injuries;
- Loss of consortium damages for the reasons your mesh injuries have affected your relationship with your spouse; and
- Punitive damages on top of all of this if the facts of the case warrant this type of compensation.
We recognize how dramatically your C-QUR injuries have changed your life, and we want to help restore whatever stability and security we can to you and your family. Time could be running in your time to join the C-QUR MDL, so contact our firm today.
