Granuflo – Heart Attack
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are drugs used in kidney dialysis procedures. These drugs are used in concert during kidney dialysis to eliminate the normal blood acid buildup.
Possible Personal Injury: Heart Attack
Unfortunately, the liver converts the active ingredients to bicarbonate resulting in excessive levels in the blood stream. High bicarbonate levels can lead to sudden heart attack and other serious conditions.
History of Granuflo
In November of 2011 an internal Fresenius memo alerted of the dangerous risks of heart attack tied to GranuFlo and NaturaLyte; however, the company did not issue warnings to patients or doctors. Less than one year later, in May 2012 a Class I FDA recall was initiated warning of the risks including death.
More than 4,000 personal injury lawsuits were included in the Multi-District Litigation, and as of August 2017, more than 3,300 were still pending in the District of Massachusetts.
Fresenius Medical Care reached a $250 million settlement in 2016 with most of the plaintiffs in the MDL.
But a group of plaintiffs declined the settlement and continued litigation against the company.
