Common Problems Attributed to Kugel Hernia Mesh
Between 2005 and 2007, the FDA and the product’s manufacturer recalled multiple lots of the Bard Composix™ Kugel mesh hernia patch in response to the substantial risks the product posed. However, surgeons across the country had already implanted the devices in thousands of patients.
The Kugel mesh recall occurred specifically because a component of the device—the memory recoil ring—was defective. This defect made the product prone to breaking and potentially causing life-threatening or fatal injuries, including:
- Sepsis and septic shock
- Bowel perforation
- Bowel obstruction
- Bowel adhesion
- Internal fistulae
Although the manufacturer knew about the potential problems associated with this device, they continued to manufacture Kugel mesh. They also continued to supply the patch to surgeons, who continued to implant them in unsuspecting patients.
These devices can cause symptoms that include:
- Chronic and severe abdominal pain
- Tenderness at the insertion site
- Unexplained or unusual intestinal disruption
In addition, the mesh can erode, migrate, or cause other complications that require potentially dangerous revision surgery. If you or a loved one experienced any of these complications, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages.
Here at the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod & Baril, PLLC, we help patients who:
- Suffered complications related to Kugel mesh
- Had revision surgery due to Kugel mesh
- Still need surgery to repair or replace Kugel mesh
