Helping The Victims Of Medtronic Infuse Treatment
More than 1 million people have had Infuse implanted in their spines, worldwide. Infuse is a product made by Medtronic that is intended to encourage bone growth at the site of a spinal surgery. Infuse is a genetically engineered protein that has been approved by the FDA for use on patients who are undergoing an anterior lumbar fusion. Of the many patients who have received the treatment, only a small percentage actually had that procedure done. Off-label uses, meaning uses not approved by the FDA, make up the vast majority of the market for Infuse.

Questionable Practices At Medtronic
The concerns over the Infuse product have been compounded by allegations of falsified research and conflicts of interest. Medtronic has been accused of paying off researchers for favorable results, as well as violating rules about how medical products can be marketed. Some question whether Infuse bone treatments offer any benefits over traditional treatments that do not carry the same risk of side effects. So far, Medtronic’s Infuse has been the subject of more than 700 lawsuits, with many more expected in the near future.
