Medtronic Infuse Lawyers Reviewing Lawsuits for Bone Graft Problems
More than three years after our lawyers first posted information on this blog about the risk of problems with Medtronic Infuse bone graft surgery, individuals continue to suffer serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.
This week, we added new information and resources to our website about potential Medtronic Infuse lawsuits, which are being investigated for individuals throughout the United States who have been hospitalized or died as a result of problems following off-label use of the genetically engineered bone growth stimulator.
The Medtronic Infuse lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential claims for individuals who experienced bone graft problems, such as:
- Inflammatory Reactions or Swelling
- Nerve Damage
- Breathing or Respiratory Problems
- Sterility in Men
- Sudden Death
Medtronic Infuse contains an absorbable collagen sponge that is treated with rhBMP-2 (Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein), which encourages the growth of bone and the joining or fusion of the vertebrae together. However, the release of rhBMP-2 into other areas of the body may stimulate a rapid, potentially life-threatening reaction.
According to allegations raised in product liability lawsuits over the Medtronic Infuse, the manufacturer recklessly encouraged the use of the bone graft during procedures that were never studied, even though it was known that such use may increase the risk of serious injury.
