Atrium Medical Receives FDA Approval for its Novel C-QUR Lite(TM) V-Patch and C-QUR Edge(TM) V-Patch

HUDSON, N.H., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Atrium Medical Corporation is pleased to announce it has obtained US FDA 510(K) approval for two new Omega 3 surgical mesh products; C-QUR Edge(TM) V-Patch and C-QUR Lite(TM) V-Patch.

These new products are indicated for use in the surgical repair and reinforcement of soft tissue, including hernia repair -- a common procedure performed more than 700,000 times in the US each year. This novel technology combines Atrium's ProLite Ultra(TM) polypropylene surgical mesh with a proprietary, pharmaceutical grade Omega 3 fatty acid bio-absorbable gel coating. Atrium's discovery of combining an inert thin wall polypropylene mesh with an Omega 3 biological coating in pre-clinical studies has demonstrated a minimization of tissue attachment as well as a significant reduction in both foreign body reaction and inflammation, resulting in a well healed, reinforced repair.

C-QUR Edge(TM) V-Patch and C-QUR Lite(TM) V-Patch are designed to simplify umbilical, epigastric, trocar-site, and other small abdominal wall hernia repairs. C-QUR Edge(TM) V-Patch offers long-term protection from visceral tissue attachment when placed intra-abdominally while the C-QUR Lite(TM) version offers superior handling and healing characteristics for a pre-peritoneal repair.

The use of Atrium's all natural Omega 3 bio-absorbable coating with its advanced lightweight surgical mesh provides today's clinicians with a broad spectrum of options for soft tissue repair. Atrium's C-QUR Edge(TM) V-Patch and C-QUR Lite(TM) V-Patch will be available in a variety of sizes mid-year 2008.
