Current Status Of The Bard PowerPort Lawsuit

As of September 2023, there are approximately 50 Bard PowerPort cases in litigation. In August 2023, all claims were centralized by the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation into a consolidated Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) before US District Court Judge David G. Campbell of Arizona.. Since the claims were centralized into an MDL they will remain individualized and each plaintiff will be tasked with presenting their own damages.

What Is Causing People To File PowerPort Lawsuits

Those who are filing lawsuits against Bard are claiming that particles of barium sulfate break down the surface of the PowerPort catheter causing pits, divots, microfractures, cracks, and breakage of the device over time. This may cause the device to malfunction, fracture, and even migrate to other parts of the body. Additionally, catheter particles may also enter the bloodstream and travel to internal organs, causing life-threatening infections or organ damage.

According to complaints that have already been filed, patients with the implant experience an increased risk of the following:

  • Thromboembolism – A life-threatening blood clot that blocks blood flow in the veins
  • Cardiac tamponade – Fluid buildup around the heart, a life-threatening emergency that makes it difficult to pump blood
  • Cardiac perforations – Tearing or puncturing of the heart
  • Cardiac arrhythmia – Irregular heart rhythms which can be life-threatening
  • Myocardial infarction symptoms – Heart attack symptoms, such as chest pain, dizziness, and difficulty breathing
  • Pulmonary embolism – a blood clot that has traveled to the lungs, which blocks blood flow to the lungs and can be deadly without emergency treatment
  • Hematomas – Severe bruising caused by the pooling of blood under the skin
  • Organ, tissue, and vessel perforations – Tearing of internal body structures
  • Necrosis – Tissue death
