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
