tal status changes, difficulty swallowing, and difficulty breathing during which he nearly suffocated. He then required an emergency bedside tracheotomy after a few of his front teeth were knocked out in an effort to intubate him.

Medtronic's Infuse(R) Bone Graft product has been the subject of a recent whistleblower lawsuit brought by former Medtronic employees who alleged that doctors received more than $8 million in 2006 in "sham" consulting fees for using and promoting the Infuse(R) Bone Graft product. Medtronic's marketing and promotion of the device for off-label uses is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice. In addition, the U.S. Senate is conducting hearings into the matter. Medtronic previously settled for $40 million with the Justice Department on another whistleblower action alleging that, between 1998 and 2003, Medtronic's spinal products division paid kickbacks to doctors in a number of forms, including sham consulting agreements, sham royalty agreements and lavish trips to desirable locations.

The case is "Paul and Susan Antonelli v. Medtronic, Inc. and Medtronic Sofamor Danek USA, Inc.," in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Case No. 09 CV 00183).
