    If Osteocel was effective there wouldn't be people with Coroent XL's implanted without fixation who are still not fused.

    There are people who are years post-XLIF surgery and still aren't fused. 2011 Medical Journal article saying almost 75% of all the old people who got XLIF died. If Osteocel was effective they would have fused and not developed complications....infections from the plastic spine spacer flopping around.

    Everyone knows its been un-reported and covered up that so many people developed infections in the operated space after XLIF's without fixation. Those people mainly developed those infections due to fixation not being used to bolt the vertebrae together...and Osteocel's magical cells in the product failed to kickstart bone fusion.

    There used to be very good monitoring by the FDA of people harvesting organs/cells/products from the FDA.......the news has been silent for years and we've not heard any stories of the FDA cracking down on companies harvesting things from the dead. I wouldn't get any product or organ harvested from a cadaver.

    Osteocel did hit the market and used on people before it was recalled. .....They found the cadaver they harvested from.....was diseased with something really bad. Hepatitis wasn't it?

    somethings wrong with that study. I dont think the time table is long enough. the number of deaths of the elderly with XLIFs should be 100%
