Fresenius Attorneys - Heart Attack During/After Dialysis?
Are You Entitled to Compensation for Injury or Death Caused by Fresenius GranuFlo and NaturaLyte Dialysis Products?
- Have you or a loved one suffered a heart attack during or after hemodialysis treatment?
- Has a loved one died shortly after using Fresenius NaturaLyte and GranuFlo?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall for NaturaLyte Liquid and GranuFlo Dry Acid Concentrate products manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care. These products were designed to treat both acute and chronic renal failure during hemodialysis. However, it was discovered that NaturaLyte and GranuFlo may actually lead to cardiac arrest, heart attack or sudden death. Do you need to speak with a fresenius attorney?
Fresenius Medical Care is based in Germany, but provides dialysis treatment to as many as one-third of all Americans. The New York Times reported that in November 2011, Fresenius notified its own physicians of the risk of cardiac arrest during dialysis in connection with these medications; however, it did not notify other centers of these same risks until the FDA received an anonymous tip pointing to the original internal memo.
