C.R. Bard to Pay $184M to Settle Hernia Patch Lawsuits

Posted on July 7th, 2011 No Comments

C.R. Bard Inc. has agreed to pay $184 million to settle most of the lawsuits filed over its allegedly defective hernia patches.

According to court documents, the settlement will affect about 2,600 of the 3,600 Composix Kugel hernia patch injury lawsuits filed throughout the country. The lawsuits concern patches manufactured by Bard subsidiary Davol from 2001 to 2006.

Many of the claims center on the patches faulty “memory recoil ring.” The ring, which deploys once the hernia patch is inserted into the abdomen, can easily break under stress. As a result, pieces of the ring travel inside the body, damaging internal organs and causing bowel perforations.

The mesh patches were distributed throughout the country, and hernia patch injury lawsuits were filed in many states. The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated the claims and the lawsuits were sent to Rhode Island, where they are being handled by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mary M. Lisi.
