Kennedy Hodges is currently reviewing Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft cases nationwide. The Infuse bone graft is housed in a small container or cage that is implanted into the spine and is used to encourage bone growth. Infuse is manufactured by Medtronic, Inc. and consists of the LT-Cage Device, a small, hollow metal cylinder, which is filled with a genetically engineered material that stimulates bone growth.
In 2002, the FDA approved of the Infuse Bone Graft for use in lower spine-repair surgery to promote bone growth, however Medtronic has been accused of promoting the "off-label" uses of the Infuse product to healthcare providers. Many patients have received Infuse in off-label uses during surgery on the lumbar or cervical spine. When this "off-label" usage happens, complications can arise.
Injuries Caused by Defective Infuse Bone Graft
Many patients have reported experiencing serious problems, including:
- Uncontrolled bone growth at or near the site of the surgery
- Chronic radiating pain in the legs or arms
- Male sterility, retrograde ejaculation, or other uro-genital injuries
- Difficulty Breathing, Swallowing or Speaking
- Compression of the Airway
- Respiratory Depression
- Nerve Damage
