Anytime a medical products company’s care for the bottom line is clouded by their needs for maximizing the money they make, a patient’s well-being is unfairly at risk. We routinely review the favorable rulings that are issued by federal courts for claims related to dangerous medications and negligent healthcare product manufacturers. Unjustifiably, there are some incidences where medical device manufacturers choose not to tell consumers (or their healthcare provider) that a reported problem has been identified..
Side Effects of Bard® Kugel® Hernia Patch Use
For patients who are undergoing ventral hernia repair surgery, the Kugel® Composix Mesh Patch is a product often used to close the hernia and help the tissue heal. These products can migrate within the body, which permits the mesh to expose the bowel and other internal organs to the wrong side of the patch. Dangerous side effects or negative patient outcomes include:
- Persistent Abdominal Pain
- Unexplained Fever
- Tenderness at the Implant Site
- Other Unusual Symptoms
NOTE: According to the FDA, patients with a Bard® Mesh Patch should seek immediate medical attention if they experience any of the symptoms listed above.
