Judge Denies Medtronic’s Bid to Dismiss Lawsuit Alleging that the Off-Label Usage of its Infuse Bone Growth Product Caused Disability, Parker Waichman LLP Notes
Date:7/25/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, notes that a Plaintiff's lawsuit alleging that the off-label use of Medtronic’s Infuse bone graft product had caused him to be permanently disabled will proceed. The Judge has denied Medtronic’s bid to have the lawsuit overturned, according to court papers. The suit was filed on Jan. 10, 2013, in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill. (Case No.: 2013-L-000305).

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff had been diagnosed with problems in his cervical spine and, as a result, was given a posterior cervical fusion in 2011. This, the Complaint noted, represented an off-label use of the product because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had not approved Infuse to be used in cervical procedures.

Parker Waichman LLP is reporting that it continues to investigate allegations of people who claim they were harmed by the product. Such allegations are not limited to the off-label use of Medtronic’s Infuse. In fact, two independent studies* published in the June edition of the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine call into question Infuse’s overall level of effectiveness, as well as highlight potential harm the product can cause.

The two independent studies, overseen by Yale University, reveal important key findings regarding Medtronic’s Infuse product—namely, that there is little, if any, differ
