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.
Scoliosis growing rods are often used as a treatment option for Early Onset Scoliosis (EOS). Growing Rods such as the NuVasive MAGEC System have recently become the subject of litigation.
The MAGEC System includes a titanium adjustable growing rod that is surgically implanted and distracted externally thereafter. There is a magnet within the rod that allows it to be adjusted by an External Remote Controller (ERC). These noninvasive distractions are meant to be quick and painless.
However, there have been many reports of failing MAGEC Systems causing dangerous complications in young patients. Cases of rod fracture, rod failure to lengthen, and metallosis have caused children to require unplanned revision surgery.
In fact, a study conducted by the British Scoliosis Society found that 43 out of 195 patients (22%) required unplanned revision surgery.
Revision surgery presents various health hazards to children, including increased risk of exposure to infection as well as increased exposure to anesthesia during brain development.
If your child has undergone revision surgery due to a scoliosis growing rod, you may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering, medical bills, and more. An experience defective medical device attorney will be able to advise you on your potential case and help you file the lawsuit.
