1. Lawsuit

Introduction to Bard PowerPort™ Product Lawsuits

A Bard PowerPort™ catheter is inserted beneath the skin to make accessing a person's veins easier. Dickey Anderson Law Firm is filing product liability lawsuits based on injuries, that have been reported to the FDA, caused by known defects in certain devices in Bard's PowerPort™ line of products.

In the FDA’s MAUDE adverse event database, the following complications have been associated with certain devices in the Bard PowerPort™ line: infection, thrombosis, fracture, leakage, migration, and death.

  • Bard PowerPort™ infections (sepsis or septic shock) can occur when bacteria infect the Bard PowerPort™ site and spread around the body. 
  • Bard PowerPort™ thrombosis occurs when a blood clot forms around or inside the Bard PowerPort™. 
  • Bard PowerPort™ fracture happens when part of the port breaks off, which can lead to injury to the heart or lungs.
  • Bard PowerPort™ leakage can occur when the port is left in the body for too long, and the chemotherapy agents escape through cracks or tears in the port device.
  • Bard PowerPort™ migration can occur when the port moves from its original position, leading to perforation (tearing) of the vein. 

The PowerPort™ is an implanted port catheter that makes it easier and faster for doctors and nurses to give medications, intravenous drips, nutrients, and other treatments such as chemotherapy.

Bard PowerPort™ Product Lawsuits

An implantable port and catheter are introduced directly into the patient's vascular system. Due to mechanical stress parts of the device can break down and fracture in the body. Broken pieces can then move through the patient's vascular system, causing serious injuries and adverse events such as perforation, bleeding, and even death. Some other possible side effects are the following:

  • Blood clots
  • Hematoma
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Cardiac Arrhythmia 

Several Bard PowerPort™ Product Lawsuits have been filed by patients who have experienced these complications from their ports.

Bard PowerPort™ Product Lawsuits claim that the manufacturer failed to warn patients about the risks associated with the Bard PowerPort™ and that they knew or should have known about the dangers of Bard PowerPort™ complications.

In addition, the lawsuits claim that Bard could have used a safer alternative material that would not have deteriorated in the body and prevented many injuries and deaths.

You might be entitled to compensation if a Bard PowerPort™ injured you or a family member.
