March 10, 2021—San Diego, CA. The lawyers at Schmidt National Law Group have been alerted to the potential dangers and problems of the faulty NuVasive MAGEC® X Rod used in children needing onset scoliosis treatment.
NuVasive’s MAGEC® X product first came to market in 2018 in the U.S. This faulty product could have affected many children since more than 100,000 children are diagnosed with scoliosis each year in the United States.
The complete recall of the NuVasive’s MAGEC® X Rod system was initiated by the company on February 13, 2020 after reports of an actuator cap component separating after installation which could lead to various injuries such as:
This is a Class 2 Device Recall listed on the FDA website.
NuVasive had issued its first safety notice in 2019 and in a public address on its website where it listed the following warnings and precautions:
