Medtronic Infuse Bone Grafts have been linked to life-threatening complications that may require additional surgery to correct. When used in off-label settings, the Infuse Bone Graft has been linked to a number of serious respiratory problems.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning after Medtronic allegedly promoted off-label use of Infuse Bone Graft for cervical fusion and neck surgeries on the upper spine. To date, the FDA has only approved the Infuse Bone Graft to be used during surgery on the lower spine. Off-label use of the bone grafts can lead to breathing issues, difficult swallowing, airway compression, and difficulty speaking.
The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft has been linked to other serious side effects including male sterility, excessive bone growth, nerve damage, numbness and airway compression issues.
