No lot number has been provided; therefore a review of the manufacturing records could not be conducted. As reported the mesh remains implanted. Based on the limited information that has been provided to date and not having the sample for review, no definitive conclusions can be made at this time. Should additional information be obtained, a supplemental mdr will be submitted. The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time.

Event Description
The following was reported to davol: it has been reported that during a case, after tacking the ventralight st hernia patch into place the surgeon thought there may have been holes in the mesh. The surgeon completed the case, but later had concern about how this would affect the patient.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
This is an addendum to the initial mdr as additional information and intraoperative photos have been provided. The images provided show areas of material separation of the st coating. It is possible that portions of the coating were wet and stuck together and when the surgeon separated the sections of st coating this caused the material separation as shown in the images. Our instructions-for-use, supplied with the device recommends that the mesh "be completely immersed in sterile saline for no more than 1-3 seconds immediately prior to placement in order to maximize flexibility of the prosthesis. " device remains implanted.
 
Event Description
The following was reported to davol: it has been reported that during a case, after tacking the ventralight st hernia patch into place the surgeon thought there may have been holes in the mesh. The surgeon completed the case, but later had concern about how this would affect the patient. Addendum per follow up with the surgeon: the surgeon reported that he has recently been using davol mesh. The mesh was placed in an open umbilical procedure. It was not hydrated prior to insertion. Trans facial sutures were placed north and south, the mesh loosely rolled per recommended method. He stated that he did note the mesh had stuck together and he had to separated it, but did not note any defects at that time. After fastening the mesh he noted 3 areas where it appeared that the st coating had come off. He said these were fairly large areas. At this point he did not want to remove the mesh due to the trauma that could present to the tissue. He reports the patient has not reported any post-op complications at this time but that he is monitoring her progress.
