The MEDTRONIC INFUSE BONE GRAFT contains a synthetic protein called recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) that promotes bone growth. It has been approved for spinal applications, tibia repairs, and dental procedures. However, it has been linked to life-threatening complications including:
  • swelling of the airways
    • difficulty swallowing
    • difficulty breathing
    • difficulty speaking
  • uncontrolled bone growth at or near the surgery site
  • infections
  • cancer
    • including thryoid, stomach, breast, skin melanoma, ovarion, laryngeal, pancreatic, lung, lymphoma
  • sterility
  • bone and nerve injuries
  • urinary problems.
January 22, 2015 the FDA issued a safety alert that recombinant proteins or synthetic bone graft substitutes should not be used in minors under the age of 18.
