A Catheter is a small flexible tube that can be placed into the vein. It is made of polyurethane, a durable, soft material that can be left in place for several days. The port for injection allows medical professionals to access the catheter without needing to remove it.

Medical facilities across the globe rapidly adopted these simple and inexpensive devices to enhance the long-term care of patients. However, doctors and patients were unaware that this life saving device could have a life-threatening impact. 

Medical mistakes are the third most common cause of death, following cancer and heart disease. In addition, the recent explosion of Bard PowerPort Catheter lawsuits adds to this tragic trend.

A few sufferers, expected to get their medicines via their bloodstreams, used a mixture of toxic substances. What is the possibility?!

Catheter Fracture and Migration: Key Defects and Serious Injuries

The material of the catheter was breaking down and getting inside the body. Blood clots, severe infections, cardiac punctures, and other health problems followed.

Does it happen when a tube that connects to your body suffers the effects of wear and tear? It’s not a pleasant experience. The broken pieces of plastic can penetrate your body’s vascular system and cause destruction.

Below are a few of the most serious health issues caused by fractures of catheters:

  • Blood clots
  • Blood vessels damaged
  • Hematomas
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Cardiac punctures
  • Embolization of the lungs

Certain lawsuits have revealed a different cause of their injuries – the possibility of a catheter’s migration.

The unintentional change in the catheter tube may result in significant damage, for example:

  • Blood flow restriction
  • Catheter failure
  • Infection
  • Organs damaged

Understanding Product Liability in Bard PowerPort Lawsuits

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission study showed that defective products can cause 29.4 million injuries and 21400 yearly deaths.

How can you make manufacturers accountable for their negligence? It is what the law on product liability was designed to do. It imposes an obligation of care on each seller and manufacturer to ensure the safety of the product they put in the customers’ hands.

Each product must be able to meet the normal requirements of the consumer. Any defect that undermines product quality or poses a threat to the consumer is a violation of this obligation. It allows consumers to pursue legal actions against the manufacturer for compensation for injuries and damages.

In this instance, the spotlight is Bard Access Systems Inc., C.R. Bard, Inc., and Becton Dickson & Company. The multi-billion-dollar medical technology giant made the flawed Bard PowerPort catheter devices.

The victims who were injured claim that Bard was not up to the task in several areas, such as:

  • Not disclosing the dangers associated with the device
  • Health issues that users do not disclose
  • Inability to initiate a timely product recall
  • Not providing a safer alternative design 

However, you don’t need to wait for anyone to take action to safeguard your health.

In every state, more victims are taking action each month to demand Bard accountable for their harm. The legal fight will likely be a class lawsuit MDL in the case of Bard.
