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.
