Manufacturer Narrative
As reported, post-implant of the ventrio st mesh, the patient experienced bowel obstruction and adhesions and underwent surgical intervention. Also reported was that the patient developed a superficial surgical site infection following the second procedure. Intraoperative photos provided from the second procedure did not assist in determining a root cause of the reported postoperative complications. Based on the information available, no conclusions can be made. To date, this is the only reported complaint from this manufacturing lot. Adhesion and infection are known inherent risks of surgery. The instructions-for-use (ifu) supplied with the device lists adhesions, and infection as possible complications. In regards to the infection, the warning section of the ifu states "if an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the mesh. An unresolved infection may require removal of the device. " note, the date of event is considered to be a best estimate as (b)(6) 2021. Should additional information be provided, a supplemental mdr will be submitted.
Event Description
As reported, the patient underwent an abdominal wall reconstruction and ventral hernia repair using a bard/davol ventrio st. Post implant, about two weeks later, the patient presented with bowel obstruction which required surgery. During the surgery, it was found that the omentum and several loops of small bowel were densely adhered to the mesh. The small bowel mesentery had volvulized around the adherent loops which was intervened quickly without any requirement for bowel resection. As reported, the patient remained hospitalized with an ileus and has developed a superficial surgical site infection.
