Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch

The mesh patches that are being recalled were surgically implanted into people to support the abdominal wall after hernia surgery and have a “memory recoil ring” that makes it pop into shape after it is inserted.  The recall is due to ring breakage, which can result in a sharp, exposed point inside the abdomen, which can perforate the intestines, cause a fistula, abcess, bowel obstruction, and in some cases sepsis and death.   If you have had a recent hernia surgery and are experiencing fever, pain at the incision site, abdominal tenderness or distention, nausea, contact your doctor immediately.  Anyone that has had a Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patch should receive notice from their hospital or surgeon.  However, this isn’t always the case.  Therefore, if you have had hernia surgery, it is probably a good idea to contact your surgeon to find out if your patch was recalled. The recall applies to the oval, large oval, and large circle devices.
