    I've never even heard of INFUSE... Sorry, can't help you here. Maybe there's something online about it.

    there is rohr...and all over the TV...ads to call the attorneys leading the lawsuit...
    sounds very scary...
    cannot imagine how frightening it would be to find out something placed in your
    spine could cause so many scary health problems!
    i was wondering if anyone on forum had any personal knowledge of INFUSE

    This is BMP2. When used in the lumbar spine, it is thought to be completely safe. The problem comes from using it off label.

    As far as I know, there is no class action suit. Did you hear something new?

    Here are two previous threads on the topic:

    yes, huge ads on TV...with law company phone number, etc...
    and also, when you type the law company name into the computer,
    you can go to the part of their website that refers to medical law suits...
    definitely huge law suit in the works...
    i'll find the name of lawyers and post it...

    you can find the lawyers....and law suits
    go to yourlawyer.com
    then type "InFUSE" in the search and up pops all kinds of info about
    law suits concerning them....
    what i read initially was InFUSE was a problem for anterior and off
    label surgeries...but then after that it sounded like it is a problem for
    any surgeries...
    i was pretty surprised to read it...
    i am not trying to freak anybody out or say the lawsuit is true...
    just that there are lawsuits in process...
