Hernia Patch Lawyers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island
The Bard® Composix® Kugel® Mesh Patch is used to repair ventral (incisional) hernias caused by thinning or stretching of scar tissue that forms after surgery. The patch is placed behind the hernia defect through a small incision. The patch is then held open by a "memory recoil ring" that allows the patch to be folded for insertion and later spring open and lay flat once it is in place.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration urges patient's to determine if they have a Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch that is included in the hernia patch recall. View more information from the FDA.
On January 24, 2007, The FDA issued a "Class 1" recall of the hernia mesh repair patch due to a defect in the "memory coil ring.
