Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft Questioned As Allegations Unfold – Bisnar | Chase Attorneys Offer Free Consultations
Date:7/3/2012

Newport Beach, California (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

According to a public health notification released by the FDA in July of 2008, Infuse bone graft products were used in procedures that the FDA did not grant approval for use with this product.

Senator Max Baucus has personally written a letter to Medtronic stating that "These reports that doctors conducting medical trials while on Medtronic’s payroll may have hidden serious side effects for patients are deeply troubling".

John Bisnar, managing partner of the Bisnar | Chase law firm, alleges that patients who have suffered injuries while utilizing the Infuse Bone Graft devices may be eligible for compensation.

According to Medtronic’s numbers, 500,000 patients have been treated with the Infuse Bone Graft product. The product was designed to assist in the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD).

Infuse (recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2, rhBMP) is a genetically engineered protein that would normally be found naturally in one’s body. Medtronic claims that if it is used properly, one can stimulate bone formation and avoid additional surgeries during treatment.

The FDA's 2008 public health notification stated that reports had been received associating life-threatening complications with rhBMP when used
