Infuse Bone Grafts have been linked to serious side effects. It's important that you consult with a lawyer if you or a loved one has suffered any of the following problems after a surgery where the doctor used Infuse bone grafting.

A Brief Explanation Of Recent Infuse Bone Graft Lawsuits

Medical device company, Medtronic, is ankle-deep in what looks like may be a pit of legal quicksand; the company’s bone grafting technology, Infuse, is at the heart of the controversy. When the FDA initially approved Infuse, it was only cleared for use in degenerative disc surgery, plus sinus augmentation and open tibia fracture procedures. An engineered protein, Infuse grafting gives doctors control over where new bone growth occurs – an asset that’s incredibly helpful during cervical spine surgeries. As such, many surgeons use infuse off-label when operating – especially for neck surgeries. Turns out, though, that a percentage of patients are allergic to infuse and experience rapid and severe swelling of the mouth and throat. Sometimes the swelling occurs immediately, and in other instances, it hits a patient out-of-the-blue two weeks down the line. In addition to medical malpractice and device claims, one plaintiff in Minnesota is even suing the sales representative who allegedly advocated off-label use of Infuse. If your life or a loved one’s life has been catastrophically affected by Infuse, contact our team of experienced drug injury lawyers today. We’ll fight hard for the maximum compensation available by law.

  • When are InFuse Bone Grafts used?

    The Federal Drug Administration approved the use of Infuse bone grafts in degenerative disc, open tibia fracture and sinus augmentation surgeries. However, many doctors use Infuse off-label in cervical neck procedures. If you have had a neck or spine surgery over the past couple of years and shortly after suffered life-threatening complications, there’s a chance your surgeon may have used Infuse inappropriately.

  • What does off-label use mean?

    When the FDA approves a new drug, they include stipulations as to how the drug can be used. Sometimes, though, doctors take a chance and disregard the FDA’s approved list and use medications in alternative ways – this is considered off-label use.

  • If an Infuse bone graft was used during my surgery and cause complications, who do I sue – the drug company or the surgeon?

    There are currently several Infuse lawsuits currently going through the U.S. court system. Doctors who used the product off-label are facing medical malpractice suits; Medtronics Pharmaceuticals, the developers of InFuse, are currently embroiled in medical device cases; even Medtronics sales representatives are under legal fire for allegedly encouraging doctors to use the graft off-label.

  • How soon should I contact an Infuse lawyer if I was to make a claim?
