Two of the largest hernia mesh manufacturers are Atrium and Ethicon. Both have been named in many lawsuits that allege the companies knew the risks of their hernia mesh products, yet failed to warn doctors and patients about the potential health hazards. The specific names of these products are Atrium’s C-QUR and Ethicon’s Physiomesh. Though both were granted approval by the FDA, there is evidence that the companies were aware they could break into pieces, rupture, obstruct bowels, or even cause severe infections.
If you have experienced complications from any hernia mesh product, please know that you are not alone, you have rights, and you may be entitled to compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
