Common Issues with BardPorts

Although BardPorts are some of the most commonly used implanted port devices among patients who require regular access to a vein, it may be subject to a number of potentially serious issues. This includes:

  • Catheter fracture. The catheter part of the implanted port may break off, causing pieces of it to move throughout your bloodstream. This can cause blood clots, blockages, and serious damage to your heart.
  • Infection. Those with BardPorts for an extended period of time may be at a high risk of infection, as the catheter can wear out, causing tiny micro-cracks. Pathogens such as dangerous bacteria are able to pass through these cracks, but any cells associated with your body’s immune response may be too large to do so – resulting in serious infections that your body is unable to fight.
  • Catheter migration. Similar to catheter fracture, a catheter may simply fall off and move to other parts of the body, potentially lodging itself in other parts of the circulatory system. However, because the entire catheter has become dislodged, removal is much easier than that of a fracture.

Complications stemming from such issues can include:

Bard Access Must Be Held Liable for Their Actions

Although Bard Access fully discloses some of these complications or its other implanted ports, we believe that they are nonetheless negligent in allowing such high-risk medical devices on the market. Much of their issues are due to a weak or faulty catheter, which could easily be remedied by additives or coatings that reinforce the catheter – and are completely harmless to the human body. However, despite their real ability to do so, Bard has failed to add the safety measures that can significantly reduce the risk of catheter failure.

By knowingly omitting safety measures to its implanted port devices, Bard Access deserves to be held fully accountable for any injuries that are a direct result.
