A product liability attorney in Johnson City can aggressively fight for you

Off-label use of the Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft is linked to dangerous and potentially fatal side effects. Several patients have needed emergency treatment, including tracheotomies and insertion of feeding tubes. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of the Infuse Bone Graft for use in neck surgery, which has led to numerous Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft lawsuits. The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating Medtronic, Inc. for their off-label promotion of the device for neck surgery. Off-label promotion by the manufacturer is illegal.

Adverse side effects linked to Medtronic bone graft include:

  • Swelling of the airway, leading to difficulty speaking, breathing and swallowing
  • Swelling of the neck
  • Compression of airway
  • Overgrown bones, which can cause severe nerve damage
  • Death

Adverse bone graft side effects may not develop until weeks after neck surgery when patients start having difficulty breathing or swallowing. The FDA approved the Infuse Bone Graft for use in the lower lumbar spine. The adverse side effects are linked to off-label use in the cervical spine, or neck.

What is the Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft?

The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft is a medical device designed to stimulate bone growth after lower spinal surgery. The device is designed to reduce pain and complications associated with treating degenerative disc disease (DDD).

In July 2008, the FDA warned healthcare providers that the agency had received at least 38 reports of cervical spine fusion problems with the bone morphogenetic protein in the Medtronic Infuse.

The Department of Justice in November 2008 began looking into whether manufacturer Medtronic, Inc. promoted and marketed the Medtronic Infuse bone graft for off-label use.
