Medtronic Infuse Lawsuit Alleges Off-Label Use Cause Painful Complications

A man in Louisiana has filed suit against Medtronic Inc. over injuries allegedly cause by off-label use of its Infuse Bone Graft product. The plaintiff, who received Infuse during transforaminal spinal lumbar fusion surgery, claims that the bone growth protein caused unwanted bone growth along his spine, worsening the back pain the surgery was supposed to treat.
