Patients implanted with a defective Medtronic® CD Horizon Spinal Device could experience additional back injury with different manifestations of back pain
What’s the problem?
The CD Horizon Legacy Spinal System is a series of rods, hooks, and screws implanted during spinal surgery, to correct scoliosis or abnormal side-to-side curvature of the spine. It is made of titanium or implantable-grade stainless steel. The problems they treat include:
- herniated discs
- lumbar spinal stenosis
- degenerated discs
Medtronic cautions patients that, along with the benefits of their therapeutic products, there are also risks inherent in surgery of the spine.
Patients implanted with this device have a pre-existing, severe spinal degeneration problem. If the patient experiences a cable break, there may be a new back injury with new/different manifestation of back pain. The number of CD horizon legacy spinal systems on the market is uncertain, but it could be as high as 200,000. The Medtronic spinal stimulator was distributed in the USA, Canada, India, Venezuela, Netherlands, Chile, Brazil, and Australia.
