The Bard SlimPort is one of many implanted port devices manufactured by Bard Access Systems, Inc. Also known as a port-a-cath, these implanted port devices allow medical professionals easy access to your vein for convenient medications and treatments. The SlimPort is, as its name suggests, a smaller, more compact version of the standard implanted port device. It has a smaller footprint and lower profile for greater comfort to the patient.
Some common issues that arise with the SlimPort are primarily due to the devices’ high risk of catheter failure – the tube in the vein that allows easy access for injections and transfusions. Some of the most dangerous instances of catheter failure include:
If you or a loved one develops complications due to a Bard SlimPort, the liable parties will most likely be the manufacturer, Bard Access. It has been found that the catheter used in Bard port devices may not be as durable as required, resulting in a greater chance of failure. This could easily be remedied by coatings or additives to reinforce the catheter – yet Bard Access has failed to do so.
If an injury occurs due to this decision, Bard Access may be legally held accountable for the resultant damages – and they may be responsible for compensating you.
