Comments Off

The FDA has announced an upgrade to the recall on Kugel Mesh Hernia Patches to a “Class 1″ because the defective devices can cause serious health problems and possibly even death.

According to the FDA Recall Notice, it advises patients to review the latest information on the recall to see if they have been implanted with the recalled device. If any medical symptoms arise, patients should seek medical attention immediately.

Any patients that have had hernia repair that included the use of a mesh patch are urged to contact their hernia doctor or the hospital where the surgery to place to see if the recalled Kugel Mesh Patch was used during their hernia repair.
