Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft
The Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft is medical device used during spinal fusion surgeries to promote bone growth. The bone graft device consists of bio-engineered protein that is surgically implanted between the vertebrae.
The Medtronic system was granted limited approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 to be used only during surgery on the lower spine. However, Medtronic allegedly promoted the use of their bone protein in unapproved, or “off-label”, settings including the cervical spine, or upper back.
When the bone graft is used in off-label surgeries, severe Infuse side effects such as excessive bone growth, retrograde ejaculation, airway compression, and male sterility can occur.
