The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft is used during surgery to stimulate bone growth and replace damaged spinal disks. If your surgeon used an INFUSE bone graft in a cervical spine or spinal fusion operation, then you may be one of many victims of the "off label" use of this device. It was marketed and sold as one of the alternatives to harvesting a bone graft from the hip. The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft is not approved for any other uses but it has been used off-label in cervical spine (neck) procedures. The manufacturer, Medtronic, is accused of promoting a use for their product that was not appropriate, did not give proper warnings, concealed risks and did not recall the product when evidence suggested they should. It is important to keep in mind that physicians may use a product in any way they see fit for their patients but it is illegal for a manufacturer to promote the product for an unapproved use.

Medtronic was given FDA approval in 2002 for limited use of its Infuse Bone Graft just in the lower back and for some dental procedures. Allegedly, the company promoted the product to doctors for off-label use in the spine, increasing the sales to over $3 billion. The Wall Street Journal (09/08/08) reported that FDA records showed approximately 200 adverse cases where patients experienced serious complications after the bone graft was used off-label.

If you have experienced any of these, or other serious health problems, call Goldberg Attorneys now. 800.600.6014.
