GranuFlo Injury Lawsuits

GranuFlo is a dialysis product manufactured and used by Fresenius Medical Care.  Fresenius is the leading provider of dialysis treatments and dialysis products in America.  Technically speaking, GranuFlo is a chemical component of DIALYSATE which is used during hemodialysis to clean the blood of patients who have End Stage Renal Disease (“ESRD”).

One-third of all dialysis patients are treated at Fresenius dialysis centers that used the GranuFlo product. It is estimated that another 125,000 dialysis patients in other clinics also used the product, making it possible that 250,000 patients a year that used GranuFlo as part of their dialysis treatment. The product was distributed for four years, from 2008 to 2012.

GranuFlo Recalled by Food & Drug Administration

The FDA determined that GranuFlo was causing elevated bicarbonate levels in the blood of dialysis patients.  Too much bicarbonate in a the body leads to a pH imbalance in the blood known as “metabolic alkalosis.”  That imbalance is dangerous and deadly as it causes arrhythmias or fibrillations in the heart which can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death or blood clots, leading to stroke.

Fresenius issued a recall on GranuFlo in March of 2012.  The FDA classified the recall as Class 1, which is the most serious type of recall issued.  There is evidence that Fresenius was already aware of the problem months and even possibly a year or more prior. In November 2011, an internal memo was sent to doctors that worked in the company owned dialysis centers that there was a high risk of cardiac arrest in patients that were undergoing dialysis and being administered GranuFlo improperly. The memo stated that 941 patients had cardiac arrests while being treated in Fresenius dialysis centers in 2010. However, this information was never communicated to the many other dialysis centers that use GranuFlo. It was not until this memo was leaked to the FDA that Fresenius issued the recall, four months or more later.
