Indications, technique and complications of port implantation.
Summary of "Indications, technique and complications of port implantation."
Implanted central venous access devices are becoming increasingly more important in oncology as an important tool for therapists and patients. As an intracorporeal system with reduced risk of infection compared to percutaneous tunnelled catheters they ensure a permanent and safe access to the central venous system. However, they can be associated with risks and sometimes severe complications which should not be underestimated so that planning and performance of the implantation require a high level of care and attention. Postoperative care and the correct allocation of all groups of persons involved in the therapy can reduce complication rates and are thus of prognostic relevance.

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively compare the subclavian and femoral approaches to a fixed-catheter-tip method of implantation of a port-catheter system for hepatic arterial...
To introduce a new technique of laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) using single port access and modified suture technique.
An implantable port device provides an easily accessible central route for long-term chemotherapy. Venous catheter migration is one of the rare complications of venous port implantation. It can lead t...
Continuous epidural analgesia has been used for decades to treat acute herpes zoster pain and to prevent postherpetic neuralgia. However, many technical problems can arise during chronic treatment wit...
Object Despite its long-reported successful record, with almost 60 years of clinical use, the technical complexity regarding the placement of stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) depth electrodes may h...
Since the first placement of a totally implantable venous access port (TIVAP) by Niederhuber et al in 1982 its application to provide long-term central venous access has dramatically incre...
Procedures to provide interventional implantation of a port catheter system into the hepatic artery and adjacent regional chemotherapy of the liver are optimized in the scope of an open, s...
This study investigated wearability and usability of the I-PORT™ Injection Port (I-PORT™), a new disposable injection port through which prescribed medication is injected subcutaneously...
The objectives of this trial are: 1. to assess the feasibility and safety of performing SILS™ Port Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 2. monitor and compare the outcomes of SI...
The aim of this study is to compare results of the new surgical strategy to the traditional 4-ports technique for cholecystectomy in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). In particular we a...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Endometrial implantation of EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN at the BLASTOCYST stage.
Delay in the attachment and implantation of BLASTOCYST to the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The blastocyst remains unattached beyond the normal duration thus delaying embryonic development.
Means of postcoital intervention to avoid pregnancy, such as the administration of POSTCOITAL CONTRACEPTIVES to prevent FERTILIZATION of an egg or implantation of a fertilized egg (OVUM IMPLANTATION).
