The NuVasive MAGEC is a rod implant system used in children for the treatment of early-onset scoliosis. NuVasive recently recalled the MAGEC system after it was discovered that a defect was causing the endcaps on the implant rod to detach inside the body. Injuries from this defect include back pain, bone abnormalities, and inflammation. Individuals who have been harmed by a defective MAGEC system rod are now filing product liability lawsuits against NuVasive.
