Infuse® Bone Graft Lawsuits
Our attorneys are investigating potential Infuse® Bone Graft lawsuits on behalf of patients who suffered complications after being implanted with the device. We are particularly interested in talking with patients who received a bone graft for off-label surgeries such as surgery of the cervical spine and neck.
Although the Infuse® Bone Graft was only approved for use in lumbar spine surgery, it has been alleged that Medtronic illegally promoted and marketed use of the device for off-label uses. The company has also been accused of withholding information about the dangerous risk associated with off-label use of the product.
To speak with one of our Infuse® Bone Graft attorneys about a possible lawsuit, please contact us today. An attorney will review your circumstances during a free case review to determine if you qualify to file a claim.
Dangerous Off-Label Use of Infuse® Bone Graft
Medtronic has been accused of promoting the off-label use of Infuse® Bone Grafts in order to sell more of these devices. The FDA approved the Infuse® Bone Graft for a few very specific and limited uses. While other spine surgery uses or off-label uses are not prohibited, they are not FDA-approved and may carry increased risks.
Complications that have been reported by patients who were treated for off-label uses include:
- chronic pain in the legs or arms
- nerve damage resulting in chronic pain
- severe neck swelling resulting in permanent injury or death
- sterility, retrograde ejaculation, and other urogenital injuries in male patients
- uncontrolled bone growth at or near the surgical site
