Did You Suffer Serious Complications After Your Surgery?
C-Qur Mesh is a type of synthetic mesh created by Atrium Medical Corporation designed for use in fascial surgical intervention procedures that require reinforcement with supportive material that is non-absorbable, like surgical or traumatic wounds, chest wall reconstruction and hernia repair. It was first approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March of 2006, and uses Omega 3 fatty acid gel coating derived from fish oil which was intended to minimize or prevent inflammation and adhesion and help facilitate the incorporation of the mesh into the body. Unfortunately for patients who underwent hernia repair surgery using this product, the Omega 3 coating actually prevented the adequate incorporation of the mesh into the body and causes a chronic and inflammatory foreign body response that can result in a number of dangerous complications.
