Bard PowerPort

The Bard PowerPort is a group of implantable port devices, inserted below the skin, to connect to a catheter to deliver medicine and fluids to the bloodstream. Port catheters allow simple access to a patient’s veins. They are used for patients who need regular treatments with medications, such as chemotherapy.

The port contains a small reservoir into which medicine is injected. A doctor implants the device under the skin. The catheter rests inside the vein.

Bard PowerPort Issues and Complications

As patients receive medication through the Bard PowerPort, the design causes the injection flow to increase, which creates pressure against the plastic tubing. People filing Bard PowerPort lawsuits claim this design flaw increases the risks of organ damage, infection, and blood clots. The catheter can break, move, or crack under the pressure.

  • Catheter Fracture: If the catheter breaks inside the veins, pieces of the catheter may travel throughout the body and cause internal damage. Surgery may be required to remove pieces of the catheter.
  • Catheter Migration: If part of the catheter moves or becomes dislodged, it may lead to catheter failure or other injuries.
  • Infections: Over time, the catheter may begin to break down, so small cracks form on the device. This can allow bacteria and other pathogens to enter the body.

Allegations against Becton Dickinson, the medical technology company that manufactures and sells the Bard PowerPort, claim it concealed thousands of reports from doctors and patients citing injuries caused by the device. This means the company may have known about the device’s flaws and issues for years before the FDA issued its recall.
