Patients are filing lawsuits against Medtronic after the Infuse Bone Graft was linked to severe side effects including paralysis, male sterility and excessive bone growth. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Medtronic warning in 2008 after receiving multiple reports of complications.
Infuse Bone Graft lawsuits allege that Medtronic downplayed risks associated with the bone protein and illegally marketed the Infuse Bone Graft for off-label uses. The FDA had approved the bone protein for use on the lower spine in 2002, but Medtronic allegedly promoted use of the bone graft in the upper, cervical spine.
Other Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft complications include numbness, airway compression, back and leg pain, swelling and retrograde ejaculation. Speaking with an experienced bone graft lawyer is the first step in determining whether you qualify to file a Medtronic lawsuit and receive a settlement for your injuries.
