One cancer treatment method in the United States involves a device known as a catheter port. This is an implant beneath the skin connected directly to a vein. It is a faster, more effective treatment method where medication for cancer treatment can be directly administered without the need for needles.
However, C.R. Bard and their PowerPort have come under fire for allegedly knowing their devices were prone to fail, threatening cancer patients with serious complications. Lawsuits are now being filed to hold them accountable for their negligence.
If you experienced complications from your catheter port, you may qualify for legal aid. Contact the Guardian Legal Network today.
