I've never heard of Meditron and can't find any reference on the web that looks right according to your description.
My lumbar fusions were conducted by an orthopaedic surgeon as well as the titanium screws and plate in my neck.
As far as I know, no additional devices or fixative substances were used in any of these surgeries. My wife is currently undergoing a lot of traction
for both lower and upper spinal problems and she's not looking at surgery in the near future, assuming these treatments continue to alleviate her
pain. Since my problem was exacerbated by an idiot chiropractor, I refuse to see one ever again - the wife has had some good results with chiros over
but her condition got to the point that we had to get more aggressive with her treatment options.
As far as medial devices and the FDA - you'll probably have little luck getting any financial relief unless and until you actually experience
problems. I have a drug eluding stent in one of my coronary arteries that's since been taken off the market. It works and I don't worry about
