Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Failure Allegation Lawsuits Information Bank for Consumers Now Available through Resource4thePeople

ed to stimulate spinal bone growth in patients suffering from lower spine degenerative diseases.

“Resource4thePeople is shocked by the findings of the Senate Finance Committee which, in very strongly worded language, said that Medtronic essentially attempted to sway public opinion about the safety of their product by paying millions of dollars to doctors and researchers to write positive reviews,” the organization said in announcing the legal referrals.

“When a bipartisan committee issues such a report it obviously shows the strong feelings that our elected officials have about a medical device company shielding negative facts about the safety of their product from consumers while paying to have positive information circulated in respected medical journals.”

Resource4thePeople also is recommending that any patient who had a Medtronic Infuse bone graft take the time to read the report that was issued jointly by Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and senior member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) after the 16-month investigation into Medtronic revealed questionable ties between the medical technology and medical research findings.

“Medtronic’s actions violate the trust patients have in their medical care. Medical journal articles should convey an accurate picture of the risks and benefits of drugs and medical devices, but patients are at serious risk when companies distort the facts the way Medtronic has,” Senator Baucus said. “Patients everywhere will be better served by a more open, honest system without this kind of collusion.”

“These findings emphasize the value of the Grassley-Kohl Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which will result in public disclosure of industry payments to physicians starting next year. The findings also should prompt medical journals to take a very proactive approach to accounting for the content of the articles along with the authorship of the articles and studies they feature,” Grassley said.
