Upcoming Decision Looming On New MDL for Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh

Hernia Mesh Attorney News

On December 1, 2016, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPMDL) is holding a hearing in Washington, DC to hear arguments on whether to create a new Multi-District Litigation (MDL), to be known as MDL 2753, in order to consolidate lawsuits around the United States involving Atrium Medical Corp. polypropylene surgical mesh patches.  Rather than bog down many federal district courts around the country with these cases, that are increasing in number on a weekly basis, the MDL consolidation allows one federal judge to preside over these cases, increasing judicial efficiency, while at the same time avoiding the risks of inconsistent rulings and other issues resulting from multiple rulings from many judges around the country.  The likelihood of the MDL being created is strong because Atrium agreed in a brief filed on Nov. 1, 2016 that the MDL should be created and the cases should be assigned to US District Judge Landya B. McCafferty in Concord, New Hamshire.

Atrium markets the C-Qur surgical mesh for permanent abdominal wall reinforcement in hernia repair surgeries.  Atrium claims that the C-Qur Mesh’s barrier coating, comprised of Omega-3 fatty acids, will reduce the risk of complications involving the patient’s intestines, including, pain, adhesions, and erosions, while at the same time helping the mesh better attach to the abdominal wall.  However, plaintiffs claim in the lawsuits that the C-Qur mesh is defective and that there were inadequate warnings given on the complications associated with the mesh after implantation.  The suits allege that the C-Qur mesh does not cut down on adhesions, but actually causes an inflammatory response that increases adhesion formation and it also impedes proper abdominal wall fixation for the mesh patch.
