Chemo Port

A chemo port (also known as cancer port/portacath/mediport) is a small device embedded under the skin of the cancer patients to inject intravenous chemotherapy drugs into their body. The chemo port eases the discomfort of the patients of chemotherapy.

A chemo port includes a soft thin plastic tube called catheter with a rubber disc. The catheter is used to connect the port to a vein under the skin. Through the port drugs are injected and blood samples can also be taken. This can be done several times, whenever required.

Done under general anesthesia, the chemo port is placed surgically under the upper arm or chest. You can feel the port underneath your skin. Doctors pass a needle through the skin into the port to give chemotherapy into the vein. The port is flushed regularly to stop blockage.  The chemo port is removed after your chemotherapies have stopped. You can keep port for many months to get venous medications, if required.
