Hernia Mesh Patch Recalls

Posted on May 20th, 2011 No Comments

A popular mesh patch used to in hernia repair procedures has been recalled by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

According to a press release by the FDA, the Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patch, which is used to repair ventral hernias caused by stretching or thinning of post-surgical scar tissue, is being recalled. The hernia mesh patch is placed on the hernia defect through a small incision and held in place by a “memory recoil ring.” This ring allows the patch to be folded for insertion and later spring open.

The hernia repair patch is being recalled over concerns that the “memory recoil ring” can break under the stress of placement in the abdominal cavity. If the ring breaks, the patient could suffer bowel perforations and chronic intestinal fistulae.

Recently the agency issued a recall for AlloDerm hernia mesh patches, which have also been associated with a number of failures. If you have been injured by a defective hernia patch, please contact the AlloDerm defective mesh lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.
