This article was originally published in Clinica
Gambro Healthcare has expanded its recall of blood tubing sets outside the US following the deaths of a further two patients after dialysis treatment. This brings the total number of deaths to four. The company organised the US recall of three lots of COBE Centrysystem 3 blood tubing last month after two patients died and around 30 patients became ill after treatment in clinics in Maryland, Nebraska and Massachusetts (see Clinica No 810, p 10).
