Manufacturer Narrative

Based on the information provided we are unable to determine to what extent, if any the bard device may have caused or contributed to the events as alleged by the patient¿s attorney. The information provided alleges that the, "patient underwent an additional surgery to repair the hernia defect and remove it. " medical records were not provided and the description does not clearly define what "remove it" is referring to (example possible mesh explant, partial explant, or removal/repair of the hernia defect itself without explant of previously placed mesh). As such at this time, we have not identified this as reported device explant. Additionally, it is unclear at this time if the hernia defect repaired post implant of the mesh, was a recurrence of the original hernia defect or a new hernia defect, however, recurrence is a known inherent risk of hernia repair surgery and is identified in the adverse reaction section of the instructions-for-use as a possible complication. Review finds the lot number reported (huti1030) was not a valid number for this device. Should additional information be provided a supplemental emdr will be submitted. This emdr represents the bard device implanted on (b)(6) 2009 (device #1). An additional emdr was submitted to represent the bard device implanted on (b)(6) 20014 (device #2). The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time. Despite good faith efforts to obtain additional information, the complainant / reporter was unable or unwilling to provide any further patient, product, or procedural details to bard.
