Walter Reed Army Medical Center has opened a new investigation into the outside financial relationships of a former Army surgeon who an Army inquiry found last year had published a falsified research study about a bone-growth product used on wounded Iraq veterans. The Army is now investigating the propriety of tens of thousands of dollars in payments by that product’s maker, Medtronic, to the surgeon, Dr. Timothy R. Kuklo, for consulting, travel and educational activities on behalf of the company while he was employed by the Army, Walter Reed’s commander, Col. Norvell V. Coots, said in an interview Monday. Medtronic sells Infuse, a bone-growth product that was used at Walter Reed on soldiers with severely shattered shins. Those cases were the subject of Dr. Kuklo’s study, which was published in a journal last year then retracted after the Army challenged it. Medtronic disclosed last week that it had paid nearly $800,000 to Dr. Kuklo since 2001, including $42,627 in 2006 after he signed a consulting contract in August 2006 and larger amounts in 2007 and 2008. The company has said it was not involved with the discredited study. The Army is also exploring whether Dr. Kuklo violated military regulations by accepting a full-time teaching job at Washington University school of medicine in St. Louis in August 2006, Colonel Coots said.
