The defective medical device lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates currently are seeking clients who have been injured by complications from the spinal fusion Infuse Bone Graft. d’Oliveira is offering a “no win, no fee guarantee” to these individuals and their families; meaning that you don’t pay, unless a settlement is successfully negotiated, or the case is won at trial.
The Infuse Bone Graft was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for use in lumbar back surgeries. It was designed to allow the patient to regrow their own bone to fuse vertebra in the lower back instead of harvesting bone from elsewhere in the body. It has been used off label in cervical vertebrae and caused dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and difficulty breathing and speaking.
Additional injuries reported to be associated with the use of the Infuse Bone Graft include cancer, sterility in males, and other sexual side effects. Uncontrolled bone growth has been linked to the use of the Infuse Bone Graft, and has been reported in as many as 75% of the patients receiving the implant.
Medtronic has come under Congressional investigation because of allegations that doctors conducting medical trials on InFUSE were being paid by Medtronic. The FDA issued a warning of adverse risks to health from use of the InFUSE Bone Graft in the cervical spine near the esophagus and trachea.
