Ports, Injection/Infusion, Central Venous

Definition : Injection/infusion ports that are surgically inserted (implanted) under local anesthesia in the operating room using a surgical technique similar to the one used for placing tunneled catheters. The vein to be catheterized, usually the external jugular or cephalic, is surgically isolated, and the catheter is advanced through a subcutaneous tunnel into the vein so that the catheter tip is in the superior vena cava; the port is then sutured into a subcutaneous pocket typically placed in the infraclavicular fossa. These devices also may be placed through the saphenous vein and advanced into the inferior vena cava, with the port placed on top of the thigh or on the lower rib cage.
