A top Republican lawmaker has opened an inquiry into a former Walter Reed Army Medical Center doctor whom the Army has accused of falsifying a medical study involving a product made by Medtronic Inc., a company for whom he works as a paid consultant.

Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, released letters Monday seeking information about the physician, Dr. Timothy R. Kuklo. The letters were sent late Friday to Walter Reed officials, two medical journals and the head of Washington University in St. Louis, where Dr. Kuklo works as an associate professor in the medical school.
