Xcela Plus Ports Catheter Lawsuit

Defective Medical Device Lawsuits against Navilyst Medical, Angiodynamics, and PFM Medical

Angiodynamics/Navilyst Medical Xcela is one of several varieties of port/catheter products. Xcela is an implantable vascular access device that provides repeated access to the blood vessels for blood, medication, nutritional solutions (food), and other liquids the patient needs.

However, affected individuals may now be pursuing legal action against Navilyst Medical after experiencing threatening life injuries that include, but not limited to:

  • Infections
  • Sepsis
  • Fracture with migration of product into other organs, such as the heart
  • Biofilms (microorganisms that form on the skin that damage tissues and later may lead to infection)
  • Death

The product liability lawsuits allege that design defects in the Xcela catheter may have caused catheter tubes to deteriorate along with cracking and pitting.
