InFuse Cervical Fusion

Is there anyone out there that has had a Cervical Fusion with the product InFuse (BMP) used? If so, are you having any symptoms from it's use?

Welcome to the board.

The use of BMP for cervical fusion is considered "off-label" use and was not permitted by the FDA. There have been a number of class-action lawsuits against Medtronic, the manufacturer of the system.

Are you having problems?

Re: InFuse Cervical Fusion

Yes ma'am. Many problems including airway compromise and headaches. I just recently found out about the Off-label use and the major problems are having. Albeit bittersweet, I am at least glad to hear that there is a reason for my post surgical issues. I was just wondering if there was anyone on this board that might be having issues like me?
