C.R. Bard, parent company to Davol Inc., has reached a $184 million settlement involving more than 2,600 lawsuits filed against the company for medical complications caused by the company’s Composix Kugel Mesh hernia patch. Thousands of plaintiffs claimed the defective hernia patch, used to treat hernias, caused them grave personal injuries including:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Class 1 recall of the patch in 2005 after finding the “memory recoil ring” that opens the patch could break under the stress of placement and cause rupture of the bowel and/or chronic intestinal fistulae (abnormal connections or passageways between the intestines and other organs).
