The Gang of Four Plead Guilty!

The SpineBlogger can report that effective today the final member of the "Gang of Four" pled guilty to charges brought by the government tied to illegal trials of Norian XR that led to the untimely deaths of three patients. It would probably have been better served if Higgins, Huggins, Bohner and Walsh were part of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and charged with crimes of treason. By pleading guilty these individuals acknowledged that they effectively controlled and shipped misbranded Norian XR across state lines. It remains unclear as to which major decisions were made by Mao Zedong (oops!), I meant Hansjoerg Wyss. You know, the guy whom was referred to as a prominent individual only known at the time of the indictment as No.7.

Just like the original Gang of Four, it has been widely speculated within the industry as to whether these individuals conspired on their own, or were working in concert with the powers to be at the Arbeitsgemeinschaft fur Osteosynthesfragen. Regardless of whomever was the ring leader, Synthes awaits its day in court to defend itself against the governments accusations with the intent of vigorously fighting these accusations. In closing the legend of Jiang Qing, Zhang Chunqiao, Yan Wenyuan, and Wang Hongwen lives on in the modern day version of the Great Vertebroplasty Revolution! Viva La Revolucion!
