Kugel Mesh Patch
The US Food and Drug Administration first approved the Kugel Mesh Patch in 1996. The Composix Kugel Mesh patch is surgically implanted via a small incision, positioned behind the hernia, and its ?memory coil ring? opens the patch behind the herniated area. The mesh patch is then supposed to repair the hernia.
The memory ring is designed to aid in deployment of the patch, but it can break when increased stress is placed on it during certain surgical placement techniques. If the ring should break, the broken ends could poke through the mesh and create bowel perforations and/or a condition called chronic enteric fistulae.
