The Composix Kugel Patch is a surgical mesh implant used in the surgical treatment of ventral hernias (a bulging of the abdominal wall). The patch utilizes flexible memory rings that are designed to allow the folding of large size patches to be inserted into the smallest possible surgical incision. Once inside the abdominal cavity, the rings pop open, thus allowing the surgeon to secure the patch in a flat position to adjoining tissue. Unfortunately, these memory rings have a tendency to break and expose abdominal organs to ragged and sharp edges.
These broken rings have been responsible for serious to life-threatening injuries that can cause severe abdominal pain, potentially fatal bowel perforation, and intestinal fistulae which defines stomach or intestinal leakage, as well as atypical connections between abdominal organs. Symptoms of such injuries include persistent fever, severe abdominal pain, abdominal tenderness, and other gastrointestinal abnormalities.
Manufactured by Davol, Inc., a subsidiary of Bard C.R., the patch had been recalled in December, 2005 after the FDA had received numerous reports of broken memory rings and serious associated injuries. As a result, numerous lawsuits are now pending against Bard and Davol.
