Last week we announced that our Memphis personal injury firm is accepting Medtronic INFUSE® Bone Graft injury cases. But what is INFUSE® and how is it hurting people?
Here’s what you need to know:
Medtronic INFUSE® Bone Graft is a device used in surgery to help rebuild bone. It delivers a particular kind of protein to the affected area to speed up bone growth. It’s meant to be used in lower back surgery, but doctors use it for a lot of other surgeries, too – like surgeries on the upper back, neck, and spine.
Using INFUSE® in these other surgeries can be very dangerous. It isn’t approved by the FDA, and it runs the risk of causing bone overgrowth.
Overgrowth means a bone won’t stop growing. It might poke out into the rest of the body and damage the nervous system or spinal cord, which can lead to infertility, paralysis, severe respiratory problems including suffocation, and even death.
Now evidence has come out suggesting Medtronic knew about these dangers but still marketed INFUSE® for these dangerous, unapproved surgeries.
That’s why these cases are so serious: The impact of these injuries can be life-changing or even fatal; and the company responsible doesn’t want to admit any fault.
