A dangerous medical condition associated with scoliosis growing rods is metallosis. Metallosis is metal poisoning caused by the presence of metal ions in the body.
Metallosis occurs when there is metal-on-metal contact within a medical device, and this friction sheds metal particles into the body. These metal particles essentially poison the body, leading to bone and tissue death, severe pain, and failure of the medical device.
Typically, common symptoms of metallosis include:
- Visual impairment
- Auditory impairment
- Cognitive impairment
- Nerve problems
- Heart failure
- Thyroid problems
- Skin rashes
- Loosening or failure of the medical device
These cases of metallosis indicate device failure. We are currently investigating lawsuits against scoliosis growing rod manufacturers over metal poisoning caused by faulty devices.
This complication is particularly dangerous because the long-term effects of metallosis in children is still unknown. The manufacturers of these scoliosis growing rods have a responsibility to keep their patients safe.
If your child has suffered from metallosis from a scoliosis growing rod, hold NuVasive and other manufacturers accountable. Contact an experienced defective medical device lawyer today.
