Medical illustration depicting insertion of Chemotherapy Port.
Chemotherapy port can be used to draw blood and infuse chemotherapy drugs, and used for transfusions of red blood cells or platelets. In patients treated with several infusions, a port is often easier than inserting an IV each time. And some people have veins that are difficult to access, making a port a better option than placing an IV. A small round metal or plastic disc is placed under the skin on the upper chest. This port is then attached to a catheter tube that is threaded into one of the large veins near the top of the heart.Chemotherapy port lowers the risk of leakage (extravasation) into tissues.
