FDA Recalls Kugel Hernia Mesh Patches

Apr 20, 2007

The Alvarez Law firm is representing patients who have suffered injuries as a result of implanted recalled hernia mesh patches. The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch was removed from the U.S. market on December 22, 2005. The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch is used for ventral or incisional hernias and is manufactured by Davol, Inc., a division of C.R. Bard. The device was recalled because the “memory recoil ring,” which opens the patch after it has been inserted into the intra-abdominal space, can break. The plastic coil ring is designed to aid in its deployment but can break when increased stress is placed on it from certain surgical placement techniques. As of the recall date, the company received 24 reports of broken rings with the product. A malfunction of this device can lead to bowel perforations and/or chronic intestinal fistulae (abnormal connections or passageways between the intestines and other organs). The Alvarez Law Firm is representing patients who have been injured as a result of using this product. If you have a client that suffered a complication after a hernia surgery it maybe related to this defective recalled product.
