Atrium ProLite and ProLoop Hernia Mesh Implants Added To Lawsuits Claiming Defect

Atrium ProLite and ProLoop Hernia Mesh Implants Added To Lawsuits Claiming Defect
Calendar icon March 7, 2022

Over the past decade thousands of product liability lawsuits have been filed by patients claiming injuries from defective hernia mesh implants. The lawsuits involve products from several different manufacturers and have been consolidated in separate courts — one for each manufacturer:


  • Bard Hernia Mesh
  • Ethicon Hernia Mesh
  • Atrium C-Qur Mesh
  • Johnson & Johnson Physiomesh


The most recent products added to the list of claimed defective hernia mesh implants are Atrium’s ProLite and ProLoop, which have been alleged to degrade inside the body releasing small flakes and particles of polypropylene.  These foreign bodies can cause inflammation, tissue reaction, and rejection as the body attempts to eliminate the foreign material.  Complications can include hernia recurrence, pain, infection, abscess, scarring, adhesions, bowel/intestinal obstruction, bowel/intestinal perforation and repair and removal surgeries.


Some meshes have also been known to contract and crack within the body over time. Some studies have found contraction in up to 50% of cases, some occurring less than a month after surgery. When this happens, nerves and tissue can get stuck in the cracks and cause severe pain to the patient.


Atrium has come under prior scrutiny for its C-Qur mesh.  Now, a steadily increasing number of lawsuits have been filed against Atrium claiming its ProLite and ProLoop implants are also defective. The number of lawsuits are expected to increase as more patients develop complications over time from their implants.

Free Case Review




  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.

  • I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me.

Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.
