Kugel mesh hernia patch settlements are monetary awards granted to those who have sustained serious injuries from using the Kugel mesh patch produced by Darvol, Inc. (a division of C.R. Bard, Inc.). Serious injuries may include bowel perforations and severe infections. The Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch is surgically implanted to aid in the growth and healing of a hernia. The patch primarily relies on a “memory recoil ring” to keep it open and in the proper place once it has been inserted.
When Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch Settlements Are Paid Out
Since it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration, patients have been reporting serious patch-related injuries. Although Davol, Inc. initially explained these complications due to errors the surgeons made when implanting the device, research uncovered the fact that defects in the design of the memory recoil ring caused the device to malfunction resulting in:
- abnormal connections formed between two parts of the intestines
- bowel obstructions and perforations
- intestinal perforations
- severe infections, the worst of which is sepsis (blood infections)
- wrongful death
If you have been injured by any of these Kugel Mesh Patch side effects, or if you have lost a loved one due to hernia patch injuries, you will have a strong legal claim against Davol, and you may be entitled to a Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch settlement.
