What’s the Problem?
January 23, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Willie Calloway was implanted with Atrium C-Qur mesh in 2010 while undergoing surgery to repair a hernia in her belly button. Five years later, Calloway claims she needed another hernia repair surgery after developing a painful lump where the mesh patch had been inserted.
When doctors went in to repair her recurrent hernia, they found large adhesions between the Atrium mesh and her small bowel. Surgeons had to remove 2 feet of her bowel because the damage was so extensive, according to the lawsuit.
Atrium C-Qur is a polypropylene mesh designed with an outer coating of a gel made from triglycerides and omega 3 fatty acids, called the O3FA layer. Patients who received the hernia patch have reported problems, complaining that the mesh gets stuck to their bowels and other parts of the body, increasing the risk of adverse health complications.
Calloway is accusing Atrium Medical Corporation of designing a defective hernia patch and failing to warn about its risks. She claims that the manufacturer’s negligence caused her significant complications including chronic inflammation, adhesions, and an embedded mesh.
The complaint was originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania under case number 2:17-cv-00060, and subsequently transferred to the Atrium C-Qur multidistrict litigation (MDL 2753) in the District of New Hampshire. All of the lawsuits in the MDL contain similar allegations that C-Qur mesh causes an allergic or inflammatory response that can lead to severe health complications.
