What is the Bard PowerPort Lawsuit?

The Bard PowerPort implantable catheter was granted FDA approval in 2000, aiming to provide extended access for patients who need frequent medications, IV fluids, parenteral nutrition solutions, and blood products. These catheters are widely utilized for administering chemotherapy treatments. 

The ports have posed significant risks to patients due to their potential for malfunctioning. Malfunctioning Bard PowerPorts have resulted in serious and even fatal injuries, prompting numerous families across the nation to initiate Bard PowerPort lawsuits.

  • Catheter Breakage: If the catheter fractures inside the veins, fragments can disperse within the body and lead to internal harm. In such cases, surgical intervention is often necessary to extract the catheter fragments.
  • Catheter Movement or Displacement: The complete catheter might become displaced and move freely within the body, necessitating immediate surgical action.
  • Infections: Over time, the catheter may start to deteriorate. Microscopic cracks may develop on the device, allowing bacteria and other harmful agents to infiltrate the body.

Recent Cholecystitis Cases Linked to Ozempic

Between 2005 and 2016, a review of the FDA's reporting system identified 36 cases of acute gallbladder disease among patients taking drugs like Ozempic. Within 90 days of starting treatment, 42% of these cases occurred. The majority of patients underwent gallbladder removal, but unfortunately, three cases resulted in fatalities.

Ozempic received a belated warning label regarding potential severe gallbladder side effects in March 2022.

Types of Injuries from Bard PowerPorts

Bard PowerPorts can malfunction, causing serious injuries, infections, and health conditions. Health issues caused by Bard PowerPorts include:

  • Blood infections: Malfunctioning catheters may introduce bacteria into the bloodstream, leading to severe infections that can be life-threatening if left untreated.
  • Thromboembolism: Blood clots may form around the catheter site or elsewhere in the body, potentially breaking loose and causing thromboembolisms, which can lead to strokes and heart attacks.
  • Lacerated blood vessels & hemorrhage: In some cases, catheter malfunctions may damage blood vessels which can cause internal bleeding, leading to potentially life-threatening hemorrhages.
  • Organ or tissue perforation: Catheters that fail to function properly may inadvertently puncture organs or tissues, resulting in severe internal damage and requiring immediate surgical intervention.  
  • Necrosis (death of body tissue): If blood flow is compromised due to catheter-related complications, surrounding tissues may experience cell death or necrosis.
