Problems with the Fresenius Liberty Cycler: Leakage
At least one patient has already died as a result of peritonitis that may have been caused by a faulty Fresenius Liberty Cycler home dialysis system. Peritonitis is an infection that preys on the peritoneum, which is the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity and organs. Even with prompt medical intervention in the form of surgery and medications, infection and inflammation from peritonitis may be fatal, especially for patients who already have health issues like diabetes.
It is believed that patients may suffer peritonitis as a result of leaks in Fresenius Liberty Cycler cassettes, which may become punctured and release too much dialysate and lead to overfill, or the presence of too much fluid in a dialysis patient’s abdomen. The Fresenius Liberty Cycler has been the subject of multiple recalls, occurring in August 2013, February 2013, and March 2012. The 2012 recall addressed a potential software issue that may lead to overfill, while both 2013 recalls concerned the potentially leaky cassette issue.
