FDA Issues ‘Class 1’ Recall of Hernia Repair Mesh Patch

Posted on February 18th, 2011 No Comments

The United States Food and Drug Administration has announced a “Class 1” recall of a popular hernia repair mesh patch.

According to officials with the FDA, Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patches have been recalled due to a defect which has a reasonable probablity to cause serious adverse health consequences, including death. The agency has advised patients who have been inplanted with the Kugel Patch to seek medical attention immediately if they experience any of the following symptoms:

– unexplained abdominal pain

– Fever

– Tenderness at the implant site

– persistant discomfort at the implant site

The Kugel patch is not the first hernia repair patch to be associated with adverse symptoms and side effects. The AlloDerm graft products developed by LifeCell in 1994 have also been associated with numerous problems including infections, abscesses, or the need for additional surgical procedures.

If you have suffered a painful side effect after a hernia repair procedure, you may have grounds for legal action. To learn more about hernia patch lawsuits, please contact the AlloDerm Lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.
