Kugel Mesh Device Linked to Serious Injuries and Death

The Bard Composix Kugel Mesh hernia repair patch was recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the potential for recoil ring breakage which could lead to serious life-threatening complications including ruptures or blockage of the bowel, infection, and in some cases death.

The Kugel Mesh Patch is manufactured by Davol, Inc. a subsidiary of C.R. Bard, Inc. It is a medical device used to repair ventral (incisional) hernias which are often experienced by women who have had cesarean sections, patients who have had abdominal surgery, or those with weak abdominal muscles. A hernia is an abnormal gap in the abdominal wall that allows organ or tissue to protrude through the abdominal lining.

Complications Associated with Kugel Mesh

Patients who have been implanted with the Bard Kugel Hernia Repair Patch should seek medical attention immediately if they experience any of the following symptoms that could be associated with ring breakage:

  • Unexplained or persistent abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Tenderness at the implant site, or
  • Other unusual symptoms
