TAINTED BONE REPAIR RECALLED AFTER REPORTS
OF INFECTIONS AND TUBERCULOSIS
Multiple patients who received FiberCel Fiber Viable Bone Matrix, a bone repair product made with tissue from human donors, suffered post-surgical infections including tuberculosis. The product’s manufacturer, Aziyo Biologics, Inc., recalled the product as a result. FiberCel Fiber Viable Bone Matrix is a product made from human tissue that is primarily used in bone grafting procedures associated with orthopedic and spinal surgeries.
When human tissue is implanted in other people’s bodies, the manufacturers, distributors, and others associated with the process must ensure that the tissue is free from disease, infection, and unnecessary risk factors to protect patients from contracting serious illnesses.
It is likely that contaminated FiberCel Fiber Viable Bone Matrix has infected many innocent patients throughout the United States with tuberculosis or other serious infectious diseases. If you or someone you know received a FiberCel Fiber Viable Bone Matrix bone repair procedure, you could be entitled to significant compensation.
