What’s the Problem?
February 27, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff underwent hernia repair with an Atrium C-Qur patch in December 2013 after being diagnosed with an umbilical hernia. A few months after the surgery, he began suffering extreme abdominal pain.
In 2015, Plaintiff learned that the surgical mesh may be the cause of his problems, and in January 2016 had surgery to remove the hernia patch. However, he still has severe abdominal pain in the same area, according to the lawsuit.
A subsequent investigation revealed that Plaintiff had a severe allergic reaction to the mesh, which resulted in scar tissue forming around the patch. Plaintiff alleges that not only was Atrium Medical aware of the potential for this type of hernia patch reaction, but also that the manufacturer lied to the FDA about changes it made to the design of the mesh.
Furthermore, Plaintiff claims that Atrium downplayed the possibility that C-Qur could cause severe health complications in patients with fish allergies (the hernia patch is coated in fish oil). He says the company failed to notify the agency about changes it made in coating the device with this substance.
Plaintiff alleges that Atrium Medical was negligent in designing its C-Qur mesh, and schemed to convince physicians it was safe even though the company had evidence to the contrary.
Finally, plaintiff claims that Atrium failed to either investigate or fully disclose adverse event reports to the FDA, in addition to recalling several models of the C-Qur mesh without notifying the agency, patients or the healthcare community.
