Manufacturer Narrative
Currently, it is unknown to what extent the device may have caused or contributed to the reported event. The medical records provided indicate the patient experienced pain, hernia recurrence and adhesions. Adhesions and recurrence are listed as known possible adverse reactions in the instructions-for-use. It is alleged the ring inside the composix kugel mesh broke, however, the medical records provided do not mention any type of ring break encountered during the explant procedure of the composix kugel mesh in (b)(6) 2013.

Event Description
The following is based on a review of medical records provided to davol by the patient's attorney: on (b)(6) 2005 - the patient was diagnosed with an incisional hernia and underwent repair of hernia with implant of a davol composix kugel hernia patch. No operative details were provided for this procedure. On ni/ni/ni - patient had breast reconstructive procedure (tram flap) with implant of a non-bard davol mesh. On (b)(6) 2013 - the patient was diagnosed with abdominal wall pain. The patient underwent abdominal wall exploration, removal of the non-bard davol mesh, exploratory laparotomy, removal of the davol composix kugel hernia patch, repair of ventral hernia defect, abdominoplasty and excision of lower abdominal wall masses x2. Per the op report "underneath, there was, again, a large palpable object in the mid epigastric region. There was a small fascial defect over top of it. This was dissected and explored and it was seen that there was a ringed kugel style mesh that was within the abdominal cavity. On further exploration of this piece of mesh, it was found to be partially detached from underneath and folded upon itself. There was some omentum adherent to the underside of the mesh (ck), the mesh (ck) was a ring style oval mesh that was folded in itself and appeared to be pressing directly on to the liver. The entire ringed mesh (ck) was carefully dissected free from adhesions and was subsequently removed. " the resulting defect was repaired as a hernia with ethibond sutures. On (b)(6) 2013 - patient had a follow up routine nursing home care visit with indication that the patient was doing well and her abdominal wound was healing. Based on a legal request made to the md in 12/2014, the physician signed a form which indicated the composix kugel ring was fractured. No other information was provided regarding the alleged ring break.
