Since December 2005, the FDA and Davol, Inc. have issued three hernia patch recalls for the Composix Kugel mesh patch. Studies done by Davol, Inc. have shown that the “memory-recoil ring” which surrounds the mesh patch can break in larger models. Unfortunately, these broken patches can lead to a number of serious medical conditions, including bowel perforation and obstruction, and chronic enteric fistulas.
Has the Kugel hernia patch recall been largely successful in preventing further harm done by the Davol, Inc. device? Hopefully the public has been informed.
