Kugel® Hernia Patch

Since late 2005, several different recalls have been issued for the Bard® Composix® Kugel® Patch over product defects. The patches, which are used in the treatment of ventral hernias, have flexible recoil rings that allow the device to be folded for insertion through a small incision and then spring back into shape once in place. However, the Food and Drug Administration has received numerous reports of these rings breaking and exposing rough, jagged edges—a problem that could lead to serious internal injuries in those implanted with defective devices.

Dangers of a Defective Kugel® Hernia Patch: According to the FDA, a defective Kugel® hernia patch may cause organ punctures, perforations, and/or internal fistulae (abnormal passages between the intestines/organs). In some cases, these injuries can become life-threatening. If you have been implanted with a Kugel® hernia patch and experience any of the following symptoms, do not hesitate to seek out professional medical assistance:

  • Tenderness or sensitivity at the patch implant site
  • Frequent or severe abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Other unusual symptoms

Recalled Kugel® Hernia Patches

  • Bard® Composix® Kugel® oval patches
  • Bard® Composix® Kugel® large oval patches
  • Bard® Composix® Kugel® extra large oval patches
  • Bard® Composix® Kugel® large circle patches

Our firm has screened many cases, and we have been involved with the Kugel® Mesh hernia patch litigation since its inception, before the recall.
