The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch

A hernia occurs when the abdominal wall weakens, causing organs to bulge out. The Composix Kugel Mesh Patch is used to repair hernias. The patch is folded and inserted to help strengthen the weakened part of the abdomen. These devices have a memory coil ring that holds the patch open. However, the stress from inserting the device into the abdomen can cause the ring to detach. These rings can cause a variety of medical conditions and internal damage.

The recalled patches were used from 2001 to March 2006 and were at least 4.5 inches in diameter. If you were injured by one of these mesh patches, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible about how to acquire compensation.
