Hernia mesh recall could lead to future complications

The recent Composix Kugel hernia mesh recalls were issued as a result of a defective memory recoil ring which has been found to break in some cases.  As a result, small needles of plastic could slice through internal organs, intestines and the bowels, causing serious and potentially fatal injuries.  While the manufacturer indicates that the ring breakage is only caused by stresses associated with inserting the surgical patch, there is not sufficient information available to reach that conclusion.  It is possible the hernia mesh could lead to problems in the future even if there are no complications during surgery.
