Class 1 Recall: Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Patch – Updated 2/1/2007

2/1/2007 – FDA – Recall classified as Class I because the defect associated with the use or exposure to the Bard Composix Kugel Mesh Large Patch has a reasonable probability to cause serious adverse health consequences, including death. Customers should stop using the recalled product and return unused units to the company.

Use:

The Composix® Kugel Mesh Patch is used to repair ventral (incisional) hernias caused by thinning or stretching of scar tissue that forms after surgery. The patch is placed behind the hernia defect through a small incision. The patch is then held open by a “memory recoil ring” that allows the patch to be folded for insertion and later spring open and lay flat once it is in place.

Recalling Firm:

Davol, Inc., Sub. C.R. Bard, Inc.
100 Sockanossett Crossroad
Cranston, RI 02920

Reason for Recall:

The “memory recoil ring” that opens the Composix® Kugel Mesh Patch can break under the stress of placement of the large sized products in the intra-abdominal space. This can lead to bowel perforations and/or chronic intestinal fistulae (abnormal connections or passageways between the intestines and other organs).

FDA Comments:

  • Surgeons and hospitals should stop using the recalled product and return unused units to the company.
  • Patients who have who have been implanted with one of the recalled devices should seek medical attention immediately if they experience symptoms that could be associated with ring breakage such as unexplained or persistent abdominal pain, fever, tenderness at the implant site or other unusual symptoms.
