FDA OKs Hudson firm’s mesh
Atrium Medical Corporation, a Hudson-based manufacturer of medical devices, has been granted Food and Drug Administration approval of its bio-absorbable coated mesh, called C-QUR Mesh.
The polypropylene surgical mesh is coated with proprietary pharmaceutical-grade Omega 3 fatty acids, and is used to aid in the repair and support of soft tissues, such as in hernia repair surgery, the company said.
The company’s pre-clinical studies have shown that the C-QUR mesh lessens the chance of the body’s internal tissues adhering to each other during the healing process as well as a significant reduction in foreign body reactions and inflammation. — CINDY KIBBE
