Infuse Bone Graft

Vititoe Law Group is actively exploring injuries relating to the Infuse bone graft, which is manufactured by Medtronic. Jim Vititoe successfully resolved his first Infuse case in 2009.

It has been reported that off label use of the Medtronic Infuse bone graft can potentially cause serious medical issues and complications, including difficulty speaking or swallowing, compression of the airway, nerve damage and even death.

Infuse Approval And Investigation

Infuse is the trade name for bone morphogenetic protein or BMP-2, which promotes bone growth. The BMP-2 is placed inside a small cage and then implanted in the patient.

In 2002, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Infuse for the use of stimulating spinal bone growth in patients with a degenerative disease affecting the lower spine. According to Medtronic, Infuse has been used to treat more than 500,000 patients.

On October 25, 2012, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and senior member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released the results of their 16-month investigation into Medtronic, which revealed questionable ties between the medical technology company and the physician consultants tasked with testing and reviewing Medtronic products.
