Fresenius GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Dialysis Heart Attack Attorneys

GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® were recalled in March, 2012, because they carry an elevated risk of causing heart attack and death. Adding insult to injury, for months before the recall the company that makes these deadly products knew about the dangers, and the steps that clinicians should take to protect their patients, but chose not to inform its customer clinic, knowingly leaving thousands of patients at risk. If you have suffered a GranuFlo® or NaturaLyte® heart injury, or lost a loved one to these deadly products, talk to our Massachusetts drug recall attorneys right away.

GranuFlo® & NaturaLyte® Injuries

Hemodialysis is used to replace the function that the kidneys normally perform, in patients with chronic or acute renal failure. GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® are acid concentrates used in hemodialysis treatment. Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) makes these products and sells them to dialysis clinics throughout the country. The company also operates its own chain of dialysis clinics where its products are used.

GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte® can cause serious, and even fatal, injuries including:

  • Sudden cardiac death
  • Heart attack
  • Cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Stroke
  • Low blood pressure
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Low potassium (hypokalemia)
  • Too little oxygen in the blood (hypoxemia)
  • Too much carbon dioxide in the blood (hypercapnia)
