Problems with Fresenius Liberty Cycler

The Fresenius Liberty Cycler is a home dialysis machine used by patients with diabetes to help remove dangerous toxins from their blood. Unfortunately, this device has now been the subject of four FDA recalls. One recall was issued when a potential software was detected that could lead to overfill. Three additional recalls, including the most recent recall issued on November 5, 2013, concern a possible leak in the machine. This could cause the dialysate fluids used during dialysis to become contaminated, and may lead to the onset of a dangerous and potentially fatal infection called peritonitis.

Peritonitis affects the lining of the abdominal organs, known as the peritoneum. Even in healthy patients and with proper medical intervention which may include surgery, peritonitis can be fatal. It is significantly more dangerous for patients already suffering from compromised health, including patients with diabetes who may become infected after using the Fresenius Liberty Cycler home dialysis machine.
