Kugel Mesh Recall – What You Need To Know

The Composix Kugel Mesh Hernia patch has been recalled on a rolling basis by the manufacturer because the rings tend to break and are known to cause internal injuries such as small bowel perforation, and fistulas. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January of 2007 issued an extended notification to professionals associated with the patch. Patients with complaints of pain, discomfort, unexplained persistent abdominal pain, intestinal or digestive problems, feelings of sharp objects or a stabbing sensation in the lower abdomen should call a Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch attorney immediately for your free consultation.

The patch is used in the surgical hernia repairs. The product was developed by Dr. Robert D. Kugel, is manufactured by Davol, Inc., a division of C.R. Bard, Inc. The patch was designed to make it easier for surgeons to place the device in patient’s lower abdomen, reduce recovery time, and the chance of recurrent hernias. However, neither the designer nor the manufacturer ever tested the product before making it and distributing to physicians throughout the country. It has only been after the product was inserted that problems started to develop. Namely, the rings have known to be breaking which results in a sharp open and unprotected cutting like instrument in the lower abdomen. These sharp pieces cut into the small bowel causing perforations, sepsis, and require the patients to undergo additional surgery to remove the device and repair the damage. The patients also require antibiotics due to the contamination of the lower abdomens. As a result of these problems, the manufacturer has issued a Kugel Mesh recall of over 100,000 Kugel mesh hernia patches, and it is expected that they will continue to recall thousands if not hundreds of thousands of these products.

If a representative from an insurance company, a law firm or the manufacturer has either written a letter to you or contacted you by telephone, we urge you not to speak to them and to contact us immediately to protect all of your legal rights. The manufacturer has been contacting seriously injured patients in an effort to cherry pick those patients and pay them nominal damages in exchange for a general release in an effort to avoid paying them fair and reasonable compensation for their present and future medical expenses, monitoring expenses, economic damages and pain and suffering. We urge you not to speak to the insurance carrier, the manufacturers or their attorneys without consulting us first and ensuring that all of your rights are fully protected in this matter.
