Medtronic's InFuse Under Intense Scrutiny and Class Action Lawsuit
Date:6/11/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Miami attorney Spencer Aronfeld believes that InFuse (a man made version of human protein to stimulate bone growth) which was originally approved by the FDA to treat degenerative disc disease in the lower spine as well as for oral and dental procedures should be recalled in light of the results from a U.S. Justice Department formal investigation against Medtronic for illegally recommending that physicians use InFuse for "off-label" surgeries.

The Justice Department's investigation led to a 16 month inquiry by the Senate Finance Committee led by Max Baucus (D-Mont) and Chuck Grassely (R-Iowa) (read a complete article on Bloomberg published October 25, 2012 http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-25/medtronic-manipulated-bone-product-data-senators-say.html). As a result of the Senate’s investigation, the committee found Medtronic had improperly collaborated with the physician consultations that performed InFuse procedures by rewriting the results of the testing in such a manner that inaccurately reflected the risks of InFuse.

A full June 21, 2011 Senate report can be found here: http://www.finance.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Medtronic_Report1.pdf

The Senate inquiry revealed that Medtronic paid over $200 million in consulting fees, royalties and other payments directly to the doctors that were involved in the research. The Senate relied in large part on a recent issue of The Spine Journal (the preeminent medical peer reviewed publication
