Bard PowerPort Litigation

Posted by Brad Ponder | May 31, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Bard PowerPort is a medical device that is implanted under the skin to provide easy access to a patient's veins. The device is used for a variety of medical procedures, including chemotherapy, blood transfusions, and pain management.

However, there have been reports of serious complications associated with the Bard PowerPort, including fracturing, migration, and infection. These complications can lead to serious injuries, including death.

As a result of these reports, there have been a number of lawsuits filed against Bard alleging that the company knew about the risks of the PowerPort but failed to warn patients and doctors.

Here are some of the common complications associated with the Bard PowerPort:

  • Fracture: The PowerPort can fracture, which can lead to the catheter becoming dislodged or disconnected. This can cause serious injuries, including infection, bleeding, and stroke.
  • Migration: The PowerPort can migrate, which means that it can move out of its original position. This can also lead to the catheter becoming dislodged or disconnected.
  • Infection: The PowerPort can become infected, which can lead to serious health problems, including sepsis.
