Abstract

Implanted ports are an important vascular access device for patients with malignancies requiring long-term chemotherapy. Peripherally placed ports are increasing in use as they are a safe, cost-effective alternative to chest-placed ports. Most peripheral ports can be placed bedside by specialist nurses in designated clinical areas rather than costly operating rooms or interventional radiology suites. Peripheral ports are considered less invasive compared with chest port placement because of reduced procedural risk. To enhance the success rate of peripheral port placement and minimize risks, we provide vascular access specialists with a systematic approach along with some technical advice tips and tricks to help avoid mechanical complications such as repeated puncture of the vein, excessive bleeding, thrombosis or skin dehiscence, as well as latent complications such as catheter migration and catheter-related blood stream infection.
