What is EXOGEN Gel?
EXOGEN Gel is an in-home ultrasound system used to stimulate healing within bones with minor or moderate fractures. Patients are instructed to apply the gel on the skin nearest the bone fracture at least once a day. The ultrasound system is then used for a minimum of 20 minutes. Depending on the severity of the injury, patients are instructed to use the EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System more often, which could have inadvertently put them at a higher risk of bone infection due to a contaminated batch of gel.
Why Can EXOGEN Gel Be Dangerous?
Not all EXOGEN Gel is dangerous. However, the company has identified several lots that were contaminated with an undisclosed microbial substance. A contaminated set can transmit microbial substances through the skin via absorption, where it can infect the damaged bone as it attempts to heal a fracture. When used as normal and in typical circumstances, EXOGEN Gel is safe to use as instructed.
Bone infection symptoms can include:
- Redness, radiating warmth, swelling
- Excess sweat, chills, fever
- Open wound accompanied by pus
- Severe pain
- Necrosis of the bone tissue
In severe cases or when a bone infection goes untreated, it can cause necrosis in the bone and the surrounding tissue. Advanced necrosis, primarily when it originates in a bone, can cause high blood toxicity and eventual death. Necrosis can trigger many other dangerous symptoms and consequences, including amputation of the dead bones and tissues. Please see a medical professional immediately if you are showing any signs of possible bone infection symptoms.
Should You Keep Your EXOGEN Gel?
YES. Keep your EXOGEN Gel bottle if it has been identified as a contaminated batch. Store it in a safe and secure location and place it in an airtight plastic bag. DO NOT THROW AWAY.
Please do not use the contaminated product under any circumstance without first discussing it with your doctor.
Please allow our attorneys to examine and document the contaminated bottle before disposal carefully.
