Charles City Man Sues Over Implanted Human Tissue

Federal Lawsuits Have Been Filed Across U.S.

Jun 21, 2006 |

A Charles City man who underwent spinal surgery is going to court, saying doctors used parts from a cadaver never screened for disease.

Keith Bruns filed a federal lawsuit in Cedar Rapids against several companies, including the tissue harvester, the company that distributed the tissue and two New York funeral homes.

Last fall, the Food and Drug Administration which had been investigating Biomedical Tissue Services of New Jersey ordered a recall of the company's products. The FDA warned that an untold number of patients could have been exposed to HIV and other diseases. The agency closed BTS in February.

Bruns' attorney, said tests show Bruns hasn't contract any disease linked to the bone and tissue, but he will have to have future tests.

Federal lawsuits have been filed across the country, most seeking class-action status for hundreds of people who were implanted with tissues that the government recalled.
