Medtronic Infuse Bone Grafts

Medtronic developed a device to stimulate bone growth after lumbar spine surgery. It was developed as an alternative to traditional bone grafting that involved painful bone harvesting from other areas of the body.

The bone graft consists of bio-engineered liquid bone protein that encourages bone growth housed in a small container or cage that is implanted into the spine. It was approved by the FDA in 2002, only for one kind of spine surgery; that being an anterior approach lumbar fusion.

Any other use is considered off-label and a physician would have to fully disclose the risks of such use to the patient. Federal health statistics show that Infuse is used off-label 85 percent of the time.

Approximately 100,000 patients undergoing spine surgery have been implanted with Infuse. Roughly 75 percent of those patients suffer from side-effects such as:

  • Ectopic bone growth
  • Uncontrolled bone growth
  • Inflammatory cyst formation
  • Cancer and infertility in men
