The introduction of the Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft was an interesting development in bone growth. AsÂ opposedÂ to more classic techniques to heal the spine, such asÂ utilizingÂ a piece of bone from the hip, the Infuse Bone Graft introduced a unique protein to help stimulate regrowth.
Troubles began when doctors started using the Medtronic technology for things considered “off label”, meaning outside the realm of it’s specific purpose.
The founding company, in addition with separate medical entities, started using the Bone Graft for a wider range of circumstances, including oral procedures and bone fractures. Unfortunately, they underestimated theÂ specificityÂ of theÂ Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein utilized, and negative side effects began to arise.
