Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch Dangers
The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch is manufactured by Davol, Inc. (parent company: C.R. Bard, Inc.) and used in hernia surgery repair. Problems with the "memory recoil ring" that opens the Composix Kugel Mesh Patch can break under the stress of placement of the large sized products in the intra-abdominal space. This can lead to bowel perforations and/or chronic intestinal fistulae, or abnormal connections or passageways between the intestines and other organs.
There have numerous reports of severe abdominal pain resulting from pieces of the Kugel patch adhering to patients' bowels or perforated bowels, resulting in the need for bowel dissection surgery to remove the patch and repair the bowels. The Kugel Mesh Patch is used to repair hernias. The patch is placed behind the hernia through a small incision and is held open by a "memory recoil ring" that is intended to allow the patch to be folded for insertion and to later spring open and lay flat.
