Medtronic Infuse Lawsuit Filed By Humana Alleges Non-Approved Use and Coaching of Doctors; Reports Wright & Schulte LLC


Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

Humana has filed a false claims lawsuit against Medtronic, Inc., for the alleged fraudulent misrepresentation of its Infuse Bone Graft and deceiving the insurance company into paying claims related to the medical device. The Medtronic infuse bone graft lawsuit also contends that the medical device manufacturer sponsored academic publications that misrepresented Infuse bone graft and paid doctors to promote the Medtronic bone graft product as safe to use in different spinal surgeries despite the fact that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Medtronic infuse bone graft in 2002 only for lower-back procedures. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Tennessee. (Humana Inc. v. Medtronic Sofamor Danek USA Inc.,14-cv-02405)

The lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC continue to offer free legal consultations to those who believe they have experienced injury or side-effects from the Medtronic Infuse Bone Graft. Contact one of the firms experienced product injury lawyers at 1-800-399-0795 or visit http://www.yourlegalhelp.com

Infuse Bone Graft is a synthetic liquid form of protein, called recombinant human bone morphogenetic proteins (rhBMP-2). The bone graft system was used for spinal surgeries even though In 2008, the FDA warned of life-threatening complications associated with rhBMP-2 in cervical spine fusion. The FDAs safety alert further stated that these products had not been approved for use in cervical spine surgeries and warned surgeons against using them.

[fda.gov/medicaldevices/safety/alertsandnotices/publichealthnotifications/ucm062000.htm, July 1, 2008]

According to Bloomberg, Medtronic lawsuit claims the manufacturer made about $ 900 million in Infuse sales in 2011 and the vast majority of sales were for off-label uses. Bloomberg also stated a Medtronics earning report showed Infuse accounted for $ 471 million in sales for the company in fiscal year 2014. Humana’s lawsuit also contends that Medtronic paid doctors for using and endorsing the product and sponsored fraudulent studies and peer-reviewed publications to misrepresent the safety of Infuse. A Medtronic spokesman called Humanas claims baseless, because the company has listed health risks associated with the product since 2002 and Medtronic did not compensate doctors to promote Infuse, according to the Bloomberg report. However, a U.S. Senate investigative committee found in 2012 that Medtronic paid doctors who promoted Infuse to other doctors more than $ 200 million in consulting fees and royalties, the Bloomberg news article said.

[bloomberg.com/news/2014-06-02/medtronic-sued-by-humana-over-bone-graft-product-correct-.html, June 2, 2014]

Bloomberg also stated, in May, Medtronic agreed to pay $ 22 million to settle 950 Medtronic lawsuits that were filed across the country regarding the Infuse Bone Graft Device. The company also agreed to pay the U.S. Department of Justice $ 9.9 million to settle a Medtronic lawsuit that accused the company of paying kickbacks to doctors if they implanted Medtronic’s defibrillators and pacemakers and other heart-rhythm devices (United States ex rel. Schroeder v. Medtronic, Inc., No. 2:09-cv-0279, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California).
