C-QUR™ Mesh is a type of surgical mesh medical device that has been used for hernia repairs. Some patients who have had C-QUR hernia mesh implanted have developed complications due to reactions to the mesh coating, infections, issues with the mesh attaching to internal organs and other abdominal injuries. A number of hernia mesh lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of C-QUR™ by patients who have suffered preventable injuries and medical complications.

C-QUR ™mesh is a brand of hernia mesh produced by Atrium Medical. It is used in hernia repair and other surgeries to support surrounding tissues that may be damaged or weakened. When the mesh is implanted, it adds strength and structure to the injured area. In theory, hernia mesh such as C-QUR™ should provide patients with the abdominal wall support needed to prevent hernia recurrence.
Unlike some other mesh types, C-QUR mesh is a permanent implant. Made of polypropylene, it is a long-lasting plastic that should continue to provide support to tissue for the life of the patient. The polypropylene mesh is coated with an omega 3 fatty acid blend to keep the mesh from sticking to internal organs.
C-QUR mesh was intended to help patients heal and prevent recurrence of hernias. However, the product has significant side effects and problems that resulted in it being recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The use of C-QUR™ mesh is linked to a number of complications for hernia patients. These include:
If you experience any of these symptoms after a hernia repair with C-QUR mesh, consult with your doctor, then contact a hernia mesh attorney.
C-QUR has faced a number of problems since its release including warnings and recalls by the U.S. FDA.
However, many hospitals buy products in bulk and may still be implanting C-QUR mesh in patients. Patients who previously were implanted with C-QUR may still develop complications with the mesh for years to come.
Atrium and Maquet have been sued by numerous patients who claim that the hernia mesh caused preventable medical complications and injuries. Patients allege that there were serious problems with the design and manufacture of C-QUR mesh. They also allege that Atrium knew of the problems but did not disclose them to doctors or their patients.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established multi-district litigation for Atrium C-QUR hernia mesh lawsuits in December 2016. The litigation is being overseen by the U.S. District Court, District of New Hampshire. These lawsuits focus on design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to disclose problems with the products. The outcome of these cases will have important effects on how claims against Atrium and their C-QUR products proceed in the future.
Lawsuits against Atrium and C-QUR are ongoing. If you’ve had C-QUR mesh implanted and you’re suffering complications, speak with a hernia mesh injury attorney at Bubalo Law PLC about the best way to move forward.
