What is the composix kugel mesh patch?

The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch, designed for hernia repairs, has been associated with serious complications that have led to increased legal scrutiny and action.

Manufactured to aid in the healing process, certain models of the patch were recalled due to defects that could cause the mesh to break under stress, leading to severe injuries such as bowel perforations and chronic intestinal fistulae.

The Composix Kugel Mesh recall

Specific lots of the Composix Kugel Mesh patch were initially recalled in December 2005 by manufacturer Davol, Inc. after it was discovered that the memory recoil ring can buckle or break under the stress of placement. The recall notice was expanded multiple times between December 2005 and January 2007, with all recalls classified by the FDA as Class I, the highest level of recall for medical products considered to be dangerous or defective and predictably could cause serious health problems or death. 

As of January 2007, the number of recalled Composix Kugel Mesh products exceeded 100,000 units. Of these, the FDA received 34 reports of ring breakage, 21 of which caused serious patient injury and one resulting in death. 

Why Choose to File a composix Kugel Mesh Lawsuit?

Composix Kugel Mesh patches, manufactured by C.R. Bard subsidiary Davol Inc., were designed with a “memory recoil ring” that allowed the patch to be folded, inserted through a small abdominal incision, and, once in place, spring open and lie flat over the affected area. Unfortunately, that ring may buckle or break under the stress of placement, causing many painful, life-threatening, and potentially fatal complications. 

These issues necessitate the expertise of lawyers familiar with the Composix Kugel Mesh, who stand ready to assist those affected. If you or a loved one has suffered adverse effects following the use of a Composix Kugel Mesh Patch, it is critical to understand your legal rights. Initiating a lawsuit could provide a means to secure compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering, and other related damages.
