Bard Composix Kugel Hernia Mesh Patch
According to the Hernia Resource Center, a website sponsored by Davol, the Bard Composix Kugel hernia mesh patch was designed for use in open ventral hernia repair in an effort to eliminate the tension and strain on surrounding muscles and ligaments, and therefore reducing discomfort after surgery.
The hernia mesh patch is designed to be inserted through a relatively small incision and is intended to lie flat against the abdominal wall so as to require fewer sutures.
The procedure takes an average of 1 to 2 hours to complete, and requires general anesthesia.
