Bard Composix E/X Hernia Mesh
Bard Composix E/X mesh was introduced in 2000 as a method of ventral hernia repair. Bard Composix E/X is comprised of a polypropylene mesh on one side and a permanent submicronic ePTFE barrier on the other. The polypropylene side is supposed to encourage tissue growth into the abdominal wall in order to remove the need for sutures to attach the mesh. The other side allegedly reduces the likelihood of adhesions, fistulas and erosion of the mesh.What is the problem with Bard Composix E/X Mesh?
According to surgeon’s findings, Bard Composix mesh can crumble and delaminate. The mesh can cause bowel adhesions, bowel obstructions and other serious problems for patients.How do I know if I have Composix E/X Mesh?
When a surgeon places a foreign object such as mesh in a patient, the surgeon or nurse will place an identification label in the patient’s medical chart. This identification label or traceability label allows medical staff to know exactly which product was used because it provides information on the manufacturer, lot number of the product, etc.
Our lawyers and staff nurse can request your medical records to obtain not only the traceability label but also the surgical reports and other pertinent information. Once we have those records, we can definitively confirm which product was used in your surgery. And please note: there are several hernia mesh products that are currently either the subject of recalls or litigation. So even if you do not have the Composix E/X Mesh, your repair may have involved another problematic product.I am having serious problems with my Composix E/X Mesh. What do I do?
