Kugel Hernia Patch

kugel hernia patchKugel Hernia Patch Drug Defect Lawsuits

The Kugel Hernia Patch was designed for use in open ventral hernia repair. The patch was used to help eliminate the tension and strain on surrounding muscles and ligaments which reduced discomfort after surgery.

The Kugel patch is designed to be inserted through a small incision. Once inserted properly the patch is supposed to lie flat against the abdominal wall which helps reduce the number of sutures required. The patch helps the hernia to close and the tissue to heal.

The patch, also known as The Kugel Composix mesh patch, holds a small plastic ring embedded in the patch that allows it to be folded over. The ring is known as the memory recoil ring. Once the ring is in the abdomen it is deployed.

Kugel Hernia Patch Issues

Problems with the Kugel Hernia patch are that the memory recoil rings are breaking while the patch is in a patient. This leads to several painful and harmful consequences like:

  • Bowel perforations
  • Abdominal wall punctures
  • Abdominal wall tears
  • Adhesions between intestinal organs
  • Abnormal connections between intestinal organs
  • Fistulae between intestinal organs
