New York Bard Ventralex ST Hernia Mesh Lawsuits

Bard’s Ventralex was initially approved by the FDA on July 16, 2002, through the 510(k) approval program. This program allowed Bard to skip pre-market clinical studies by claiming substantial similarity to its Kugel mesh.

In 2012, Bard issued a voluntary recall of Ventralex due to mislabeling. Some patches were packaged in cartons showing the wrong size. Bard advised customers to examine their inventory and quarantine affected products.
