Power Port Mass Tort Case Litigation

Product Description

A Power Port is a type of implanted venous access device that allows healthcare professionals to administer medications, fluids, or draw blood without repeatedly puncturing the veins. It’s typically placed under the skin, usually in the chest, and consists of a reservoir connected to a catheter that extends into a large vein. 

Harmful Effects

While Power Ports have been beneficial for many patients, especially those requiring long-term intravenous treatments, concerns have arisen regarding their safety. Some patients have reported complications such as infections, blood clots, device migration, or even breakage of the device. These complications can lead to severe health issues, hospitalizations, and additional surgeries. Allegations suggest that certain Power Port models may have design flaws or manufacturing defects, leading to legal actions against the manufacturers.
