What is the Bard PowerPort Device?

The Bard PowerPort is a medical device used to help medical professionals gain access a patient’s vascular system and deliver medication, intravenous fluids, and more.

What Is The Bard PowerPort Device

The Bard PowerPort Device consists of two parts:

  1. The Injection Port: Implanted underneath the skin on an arm, or in the chest. The injection port allows easy access for injections and is made of a self-sealing material that allows multiple needle punctures.
  2. The Polyurethane Catheter: Small, flexible tube connected to the port, and is installed inside one of the large central veins that take blood to your heart.

A needle is inserted into the injection port, and medication is delivered through the catheter tube.

From there, medicine and fluids can be administered through the needle and blood samples can be withdrawn.

What is Wrong with Bard PowerPort Devices?

Certain Bard PowerPort catheters may be at an increased risk to fracture and migrate in the body.

This is due to the catheter port material used: a combination of polyurethane and barium sulfate.

Barium sulfate particles used in catheters on Bard ports may degrade and separate from the catheter body.

Bard PowerPort Lawsuits allege that design and manufacturing flaws impacted the safety and durability of the PowerPort, rendering it prone to fractures, migration, and putting patients at risk of serious injury.

What Injuries are Linked to Defective PowerPort Devices?

When an implantable port fractures, it can lead to several complications.

The broken port may become non-functional, making it difficult to administer treatments or draw blood.

Additionally, the fractured pieces could migrate within the body, potentially causing damage to surrounding tissues or blood vessels, necessitating surgical intervention to remove or replace the damaged device.

What Injuries Are Linked To Defective PowerPort Devices

Injuries linked to catheter failure, fracture, and defects include:

  • Cardiac or Pericardial Tamponade: Accumulation of fluid around the heart (pericardium) that can compress the heart, leading to reduced cardiac function and potential life-threatening consequences.
  • Heart Attack or Myocardial Infarction: Reduced blood flow to the heart muscle, often due to a blocked artery, which can lead to tissue damage or cell death within the heart.
  • Hematoma or Hemorrhage: Collection of blood outside blood vessels (hematoma) or uncontrolled bleeding (hemorrhage) in the area around the port insertion site.
  • Hemothorax: Accumulation of blood in the pleural cavity, the space between the lung and chest wall, which can cause breathing difficulties.
  • Pulmonary Pseudoaneurysm: A pulsating hematoma near the port insertion site, which can rupture and cause significant bleeding.
  • Pulmonary Embolism: Blockage of a lung artery by a blood clot that travels from another part of the body, potentially leading to breathing difficulties and decreased oxygen supply.
  • Tachycardia: Abnormally fast heart rate, which could be triggered by issues related to the port.
  • Infection: Bacterial or fungal infection at the port insertion site, which can spread to the bloodstream and other parts of the body.
  • Major Blood Clot: Formation of a large blood clot near the port, impeding blood flow and potentially causing serious complications.
  • Collapsed Lung: Also known as pneumothorax, this occurs when air leaks into the space between the lung and chest wall, causing lung collapse and difficulty breathing.
  • Stroke: Interruption of blood supply to the brain, often due to a blood clot, leading to brain cell damage.
  • Lacerated Blood Vessels: Damage or tearing of blood vessels during port insertion, which can result in bleeding and potential complications.

Please note that while these explanations provide a general understanding, medical conditions can vary in severity and presentation, and immediate medical attention is necessary if any of these issues are suspected.

  • How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Bard PowerPort Injury Lawyer?

    Our Bard PowerPort Injury Lawyers work on a contingency fee basis.

    This means that you do not have to pay anything up-front to hire a Bard PowerPort Lawyer from our law firm.

    Contingency fee agreements mean that you do not pay any legal fees unless compensation is won in your favor.

    Legal fees are deducted from the settlement value.

  • Is There a Bard PowerPort Class Action Lawsuit?

    No, there is not a class action lawsuit for injuries related to Bard PowerPort devices.

    Rather, these lawsuits have been organized into multidistrict litigation (MDL).

    MDL and class action lawsuits are different from one another.

    MDL plaintiffs retain their individuality throughout the litigation, while class action plaintiffs are grouped under a single plaintiff class.

    In an MDL settlement, compensation is distributed among plaintiffs according to the circumstances and damages present in each case.

    In a class action settlement, compensation is divided evenly amongst all claimants regardless of their individual circumstances.

  • What is the Bard PowerPort MDL?

    The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) certified the Bard PowerPort MDL in the US District Court for the District of Arizona.

    Multidistrict litigation (MDL) consolidates cases that share circumstances and facts into one district court for consistency of decision-making and the speeding-up of the legal process.

    Judge David G. Campbell will oversee the MDL, and he has previously overseen another litigation filed against Bard Access Systems Inc for its IVC Filters.
