Bard Access is most likely liable if a Bard PowerPort, Bard SlimPort, or other Bard Access device has injured you or someone close to you. Bard port devices are less durable than they should be.

Bard knows the complications and blames the medical professionals who implanted the device incorrectly. The number of consumers who have come forward indicates this is not the case. Bard must be held responsible for not taking the proper steps to test and reinforce their products. More product liability suits will pressure Bard to improve its practices and ensure people’s safety.

A1. Port catheters are available in a wide range of types for different purposes. Two main parts distinguish these devices:
Port catheters are designed to take blood and administer medicine without using needles. The port can be inserted under the skin on the chest, but it can also go in the arm. The catheter is then inserted into the veins above the heart or neck.
Central venous catheter insertion is a relatively simple procedure performed by medical professionals. Local anesthesia is usually administered to the patient while the device has been fitted. The catheter can then be left in position for several weeks, months, or years.
A2. Different names know port catheters depending on their type. Port catheters are also known as:
A3. Cancer patients, hematology, and ontology or (chemotherapy/cancer, Crohn’s disease, Sickle Cell, rheumatoid arthritis medication, blood transfusions, parenteral nutrition, short bowel syndrome) are the most common users of port catheters.Reperfusion catheters are single-use devices that remove blood clots in patients with acute ischemic stroke.Catheter devices is used for hemodialysis patients, but they are no longer used because of the infection risk.
A4. Statistics on complications from central venous cath are shocking. Around one-third of patients experience some complication. The most common is infection. The majority of these complications are easy to treat. When a defective product is the cause of the injury, the results are usually more severe.Defective medical devices can degrade and cause fractures and breaks, which may lead to infections, sepsis, organ damage, blood clots, and strokes.
A5. Catheter Migration is when the catheter separates from the port. A defective product can cause this. The catheter can cause damage to the body when it breaks free from the port. Often, it requires surgery to remove the catheter, but as long as it is still intact, this procedure should be simple. Catheter migration can be serious, particularly if the user is elderly or vulnerable.
A6. Catheter rupture occurs when the catheter loses its durability and breaks into small fragments. This can cause harm to the heart, blood vessels, and other organs.Catheter breaks can cause serious injuries and, in some cases, even death. A catheter fragment can lead to pulmonary embolisms, blockages of the arteries, and damage to the heart and lungs.A defective device is the most common cause of catheter fracture. Medical devices must withstand known pressures and be safe when used for their intended purposes. Contact a catheter injury lawyer if you have fractured a medical device as soon as possible.
A7. The most common complication is an infection of the intravascular catheter. Infections are first identified by swelling and redness around the port. A fever, breathlessness, and dizziness may also accompany them.Infections can happen for many reasons. Sometimes, however, it’s due to a defective catheter with small fractures, allowing bacteria to grow. These are usually more serious cases and cannot be treated easily with antibiotics. The device may have to be removed.Port catheter infections can vary in severity. However, for those who are vulnerable, they can be very serious. Sepsis or even death can result from the worst infections. You may be compensated if you lost a loved one because of a defective catheter.
A8. A catheter can cause an irritated vein wall, which in turn causes small blood clots. The blot clots from port catheters can be treated with medication, but the device may need to be removed in more severe cases.Blood clots may travel from the veins to other parts of your body, where they can become dangerous. Blood clots are serious when they cause heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, arterial thrombosis, or deep venous (a clot that forms in the leg, arm, pelvis, or deep veins of the pelvis).A defective medical device can cause blood clots if damaged and degraded. You can consult a lawyer for free if you’re unsure. They will be able to determine if you have a claim.
A9. When a blood clot lodged in an artery of the lung a pulmonary embolism occurs, blocking blood flow. This can cause permanent injury, damage to other organs, and even death.A pulmonary embolism can cause pneumothorax and hemothorax. Pneumothorax occurs most often with subclavian catheterization. This may be caused by a physician’s error or a defective product.Catheter migration or fracture is often the cause of pulmonary embolism. A defective product can cause both.
A10. The treatment can be made difficult if a catheter becomes blocked. The blockage is usually easily cleared. However, the catheter may need to be removed in more complex cases.A blocked catheter could result from many factors, including a defective device that has caused a blood clot.
A11. The removal of a catheter is usually an easy procedure. You can find some swelling and bruising around the area of the port removal. However, these symptoms should subside within 3-5 days.If you are a victim of a faulty medical device, you could experience additional complications. You should consult a doctor immediately if your symptoms don’t improve, if you notice any bleeding or drainage around your incision, or if fever or chills begin. The sooner you seek medical attention if you have any complications following the removal of the port catheter, the better.
A12. Bard, a major medical device manufacturer, voluntarily recalled two of its catheters in March 2021. These were the Bard PowerPort as well as the Bard MRI Implantable port. The Bard MRI Implantable Port was designed for consumers who prefer a smaller, more comfortable model.
Despite being advertised to be able to withstand high injection pressures, the Bard port catheter has received many complaints about catheter failure. Numerous reports have indicated that the catheter can degrade in the vein, causing fractures, infections, migration, and other complications.
The following injuries have been reported in connection with Bard PowerPort or Bard SlimPort devices:
Likely, a defective Bard PowerPort, Bard MRI Implantable Port, or other Bard product caused you or someone close to you harm. You should consult a lawyer to start the compensation process as soon as possible.
