Deaths caused by hernia repair devices lead to product liability lawsuits

The victims of product liability and wrongful death have begun to sue Davol Inc., the manufacturer of the hernia repair device called Composix Kugel Mesh Patch. Some of the patches have failed some time after hernia surgeries causing serious injuries and death. The use of the defective product has caused perforated bowels, has abnormally attached itself to other organs or passageways and has stuck to other internal organs. Deaths were beginning to occur at least 21 months before the first Kugel Mesh recall would take place.
