If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Scoliosis and has had complications due to the course of treatment, you may be entitled to a settlement. One of the most recent treatment options that has come under litigation is the MAGEC System, manufactured by NuVasive, Inc.
The MAGEC System is a magnetically controlled growing rod that is used to treat Early Onset Scoliosis. It is surgically implanted and can thereafter be distracted externally by a doctor.
NuVasive advertises the MAGEC System as an innovative solution to the challenges of treating EOS as a child grows. However, metal-on-metal contact that occurs within the device as it is distracted could release titanium debris into the child’s body and thus cause metallosis. Metallosis, or metal poisoning, can lead to bone and tissue death, severe pain, and failure of the medical device.
The lasting side effects of this condition in young children are still unknown, but the common symptoms associated with metallosis include:
- Visual impairment
- Auditory impairment
- Cognitive impairment
- Nerve problems
- Heart failure
- Thyroid problems
- Skin rashes
- Loosening or failure of the medical device
As the manufacturer of the device, NuVasive has a responsibility to its clients and patients. It is the company’s duty to ensure that its products are safe and they perform as designed. If a patient suffers metallosis due to an undocumented complication or device failure, they have a right to seek compensation for their pain and financial losses.
If you believe your child could have metal poisoning, it is essential to contact an experienced defective device attorney. They will be able to advise you on your potential case and help you file your lawsuit.
