Scoliosis in young children, also called Early Onset Scoliosis, is often treated with growing rods. A new type of growing rod that is controlled magnetically has recently come under litigation for causing serious complications in patients.
The MAGEC System produced by NuVasive, Inc. is one such device and has been subject of many litigations due to complications patients are seeing with the device. One of the most troubling complications of NuVasive MAGEC Systems is metallosis.
Metal-on-metal contact occurs within the device during the distraction process, releasing titanium ions into the bodies of patients. These metal particles in the body can cause metal poisoning, or metallosis, which can lead to bone and tissue death, severe pain, and failure of the medical device.
The lasting side effects of metallosis in children are still unkown, but typically, metallosis symptoms include cognitive impairment, nerve problems, heart failure, infection, and more.
As the manufacturer, NuVasive has a responsibility to ensure that its device is safe and performs as designed. Patients are not being warned about complications like metallosis before using the MAGEC System and are suffering serious medical conditions as a result.
If you or your child developed metallosis as the result of a scoliosis growing rod, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the device manufacturer. You could be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer for pain and suffering, medical bills, and more.
