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.

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.

The former British crown colony located off the southeast coast of China, comprised of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, and New Territories. The three sites were ceded to the British by the Chinese respectively in 1841, 1860, and 1898. Hong Kong reverted to China in July 1997. The name represents the Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese xianggang, fragrant port, from xiang, perfume and gang, port or harbor, with reference to its currents sweetened by fresh water from a river west of it.
