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 surgically implanted and can be distracted externally.
One of the most troubling complications of NuVasive MAGEC Systems is Metallosis. When there is metal-on-metal contact within a device, the friction can shed metal particles into the body. This causes metal poisoning, or metallosis, which can lead to bone and tissue death, severe pain, and failure of the medical device.
Metal-on-metal contact can occur with MAGEC System rods as distraction occurs. NuVasive advertises the MAGEC System as an innovative solution to the challenges of treating EOS. However, children who are treated with the MAGEC system could have titanium debris inside their body, and this could lead to metallosis.
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
If you believe your child is suffering from metallosis or displays any of the above symptoms, you could have a lawsuit against NuVasive, inc. You and your child could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and more.
