PORT BRACHIALE


Following the introduction of the ultrasound-guided venipuncture technique of the deep veins of the arm, it is now possible to combine the advantages of a fully implantable subcutaneous chamber (PORT) with the catheter introduction and placement technique typical of PICCs.
The catheter is introduced and positioned as for the PICC implantation technique: ultrasound-guided venipuncture, micro introduction set, ECG control of the tip.
The catheter is then connected to a small PORT chamber, inserted in a subcutaneous pocket of the middle third of the arm.

Main indications:

  • chemotherapeutic treatments
  • anatomical difficulties with the implantation of traditional ports (prostheses, burns, tracheostomies, etc.)
  • aesthetic needs

PICC-PORT main advantages:

  • absence of the exit-site
  • reduced risk of infections
  • less maintenance
  • reduced visibility of the chamber
  • less invasiveness and perceptibility for the patient
