Bard Powerport Catheter Lawyer

The degradation of Bard PowerPort implantable port devices has led to pain and suffering for many individuals and, in some extreme cases, even severe injury and death. Partnering with other firms nationwide, Phillips Law Group is pursuing litigation against Bard and other defendants for defective implanted port catheters including the Bard PowerPort, and we urge you to contact us if you or a loved one has been affected.

Bard PowerPort catheters are implanted below the skin to make it easier for medical professionals to deliver medication and fluids directly to the bloodstream. But some patients have suffered from injury in cases where the device didn’t function properly, or in instances in which structural degradation led to the catheter fracturing or migrating. In certain cases, individuals could potentially develop severe infections resulting in sepsis and even death.

Bard PowerPort complications include catheter dislocation – with some fractures resulting in necessary surgery to remove the broken pieces – pneumothorax, catheter-related thrombosis, and catheter associated bacteremia.

Manufacturers have known for years that Barium Sulfate, which the Bard PowerPort implantable port catheters are made from, causes structural degradation of the catheter. Degradation of the catheter material can create pores with the potential to hold bacteria, leading to severe infection or death.

At Phillips Law Group, we believe over 20 percent of these Bard PowerPort devices are defective and causing unnecessary pain to many people who are already dealing with other serious medical issues – and that Bard has known about problems with these ports for decades. Instead of fixing the issues, they’ve put profit ahead of people who suffered gravely as a result. If you believe you or a loved one has been impacted by this issue, we want to help.

If a Bard PowerPort implantable port injured you or a family member, you may be able to pursue a Bard PowerPort catheter lawsuit and potentially receive compensation.
