Scary and Painful Complications from Composix Kugel Mesh Hernia Patches

If you or someone you love suffered injuries after being treated with Composix Kugel Mesh Patch products, you’re not alone. In fact, you may be entitled to substantial compensation; our defective medical product legal team at DeMayo Law can help you.

The FDA issued a Class I recall for these hernia patches–which are used to assist with hernia repair surgery. Basically, in some herniation cases, the muscles of the stomach become too thin and/or too weak to be stitched together. Doctors use patches to prevent the hernia from busting through the weakened wall of tissue.

Unfortunately, doctors discovered that the Composix Kugel Mesh Patches often broke, causing intestinal fistula as well as perforations of the bowels. These conditions are extremely serious. They can lead to massive health problems as well as death.

In light of these discoveries, the Food & Drug Administration issued a Class I recall — the most serious recall that the FDA can issue — and ordered hospitals and surgeons to immediately desist using these patches.

Hurt patients often reported high fevers; tenderness at the site of the implant; persistent abdominal pain; and other strange symptoms. If you or somebody you love has experienced such symptoms, seek immediate medical assistance!
