Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Lawsuit

Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Lawsuit

**Please note that we are no longer accepting Medtronic Infuse bone graft cases**

The Sanders Firm is currently reviewing cases of patients who suffered serious health complications as a result of the Infuse bone graft manufactured by Medtronic.

We are New York product liability attorneys who believe that you should know all the facts about Medtronic InFuse and related litigation in order to make an informed decision about your next steps.

A review of medical research concerning the InFuse bone graft presents a troubling picture of the many serious medical complications tied to Medtronic’s product and of the company’s misleading marketing efforts.  Over 1,000 personal injury cases have been filed against the company already, with more Infuse lawsuits expected in the coming months.

If you have been harmed by the InFuse bone graft, or if a loved one died as a result of off-label use, a Medtronic InFuse bone graft lawyer from the Sanders Firm can meet with you to answer any questions you may have and to help you determine whether you have grounds for bringing a lawsuit against Medtronic.  We can help you procure the compensation to which you may entitled and will change no fees unless you receive a jury award or settlement.

Complications linked to InFuse bone grafts

A bone graft is a surgical procedure in which part of a broken or defective bone is replaced by another bone fragment (human or animal).  Medtronic produced InFuse, a bioengineered bone growth protein that was designed to replace a traditional bone graft, primarily for use during an anterior lumbar fusion, which treats severe back pain.

Although early research published starting in 2003 suggested that InFuse was both superior to and less risky than traditional bone grafts, mounting complaints and research suggests otherwise.

Infuse bone grafts have been linked to the following adverse side effects:

  • uncontrolled bone growth
  • unrelieved radiating pain in legs or arms
  • retrograde ejaculation, or other urogenital injuries, resulting in temporary or permanent sterility in men
  • cancer
  • difficulty breathing, swallowing or speaking
  • compression of the airway
  • respiratory depression
  • nerve damage
  • death

Patients who have experienced Infuse complications and injuries following their surgery should contact The Sanders Firm to discuss whether they are entitled to damages through filing a product liability lawsuit.

Research about InFuse financed by Medtronic, falsely reported

Moreover, a crucial volume of The Spine Journal from 2011, which reviewed the scholarly literature and studies associated with the Medtronic InFuse bone graft, found that multiple side effects had been suppressed in such studies, whereas successes had been exaggerated.  They also found problematic that early researchers received considerable financial support from Medtronic for their findings.

In response, Medtronic turned over their research for independent review.  The 2013 results of the study found that the InFuse bone graft offered no significant improvement over traditional bone grafts, but that it carried real risks.


InFuse bone graft lawsuits filed nationwide


As a result of this new information, many patients now realize that they may have grounds for filing a defective medical device lawsuit against Medtronic. More than 1,000 cases have been filed against the company to date, despite Medtronic’s attempt to have them dismissed on the grounds that the product was cleared by the FDA and that they are not liable for any adverse effects that the product may have had.

However, since the FDA did not approve InFuse for the off-label uses which the company promoted, and since it misrepresented research that it also financed, those who suffered injuries from unapproved uses may have the right to demand compensation from Medtronic.

Plaintiffs are generally seeking monetary damages for medical bills, lost wages and diminished earning potential, as well as pain and suffering.  In cases where a loved one lost his or her life do to the product, a wrongful death claim may be brought.
