Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
As part of its continued response to the recent FDA recall of Bard's Composix Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch, LegalView.com, your resource for everything legal, has launched a comprehensive hernia glossary. The glossary, which contains relevant terms for patients with questions about hernia repair, will stand alongside the articles, blog entries, and resources already gathered for LegalView's new Composix Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch practice area.
Bard's hernia mesh patches are used in the repair of incisional (ventral) hernias. They are inserted behind the hernia through a small incision point and are intended to reinforce scarred or thinned areas that can present additional hernia dangers. However, in its Class I Medical Device Recall dated January 24, 2007, the FDA noted that Bard's patented "memory recoil ring" fails to open in some models of the Composix Mesh Patch, leading to product failure and putting patients at risk of further hernias, complications, surgeries, and dangerous side effects, including punctured organs, bowel rupture, and intestinal fistulae.
LegalView.com has responded to the Bard hernia mesh patch crisis with a comprehensive website aimed at explaining the mesh patch malfunction and informing affected patients. Visitors to http://composix-hernia-mesh.legalview.com can read unique articles, peruse government content related to the Composix Hernia Mesh Patch scare, look at Wikipedia articles related to hernias and hernia repair, and get the latest news on the Composix crisis as it develops.
