New York Kugel Mesh Attorneys

The Bard ® Composix ® Kugel™ Mesh Patch is used to repair ventral (incisional) hernias. Hernias are usually repaired by a simple operation in which a surgeon stitches the stomach muscles back together, but this is not always possible because the stomach muscles are often too weak or thin for the surgery, in which case a Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patch may be used.

If the patch is used, it is placed behind the hernia and then lays flat against the inner body cavity so the hernia won’t push through the tissue wall. Unfortunately, these patches can break, leading to bowel perforations and chronic intestinal trauma. Other symptoms may include severe pain, nausea, vomiting, or a large bulge at the site of the previous surgery. Kugel-Mesh Recall The FDA issued a Class I recall for the Composix Kugel Mesh Patch—the strongest recall available to the FDA—reserved for dangerous or defective products that predictably could cause serious health problems or death. The Class I recall was issued on December 22, 2005, and then updated on March 31, 2006, to include additional lots of defective patches.

The FDA instructed surgeons and hospitals to immediately stop using the recalled products and return the unused patches to the company. The FDA has also advised patients who have received this device to seek medical attention immediately if abdominal pain, fever, tenderness at the implant site or other unusual symptoms occur.

I was injured in 2011 and spent nearly 8 years with Ed Gersowitz and Jeff Korek. Their professionalism and care was beyond. The process was long and at times exhausting…
