CHEMOPORT PLACEMENT

Our cancer specialists employ cutting-edge technologies in their battle against the disease. Upon evaluating each cancer patient, we devise the most effective treatment plan feasible, one that maximizes the patient’s chances of a successful cure. Tumors are treated directly via interventional radiology (IR) procedures, including imaging technologies that are the most advanced available. As a result, we avoid many of the disadvantages of more systemic treatments.

We are happy to have built a one-of-a-kind surgical practice at Rohtak Cancer Care Hospital, distinguished by excellent talents and extraordinary services, both to the patients we care about and to their referring physicians. Throughout the country, we are well-known for our ability to conduct difficult treatments in the least invasive manner possible. Our attentive staff is dedicated to giving the finest level of personal service possible to each and every patient, and they are committed to making each patient’s surgery experience as efficient and relaxing as possible.

In intravenous chemotherapy treatment, port installation is a minimally invasive surgery that allows doctors to have easy access to your veins while doing the treatment. The port is composed of two components: a reservoir as well as a catheter. Prior to delivering the medication into the vein through the catheter, the medication is deposited into the port. The port removes the need to implant a new IV needle for each and every IV therapy session you receive.

The intricacy of the process varies, but port installation is often a straightforward surgery that is performed in an outpatient setting. Vascular access is typically achieved through the internal jugular vein, though this is not always the case, with the port reservoir being implanted across the chest wall ipsilateral to the peripheral intravenous site in most cases. The provision of suitable and efficient vascular access is a critical component of the port placement operation.

The expert technologists and renowned specialists at Rohtak Cancer Care will arrange & manage your port insertion for chemotherapy treatment on your behalf. Following that, we will provide follow-up care to make sure that your port continues to function properly and safely all through the remainder of your chemotherapy treatment.

The Rohtak Cancer Care team is committed to providing each patient with the highest level of care possible. This includes examining their individual cases and establishing the most effective medication administration method for them. When it comes to chemotherapy port placement, we will perform the minimally invasive process and give follow-up counseling and care for just as long as it is needed after the first procedure.

What is the procedure’s method of execution?

The procedure will be performed in a specific process room on a fluoroscopy table, where real-time X-ray imaging will be available to ensure that the catheter is accurately positioned.

You’ll be lying flat on your back for a while. The skin will be washed with an antiseptic and draped with such a sterile drape, and a local anesthetic will be administered to alleviate discomfort. The surgery is frequently performed while the patient is under conscious anesthesia. To locate the suitable vein puncture site, an ultrasound is utilized to locate the needle puncture site, and a wire is threaded through the needle into the main central vein.

Port catheter insertion is a small surgical procedure that needs a skin incision of approximately one inch in length. It is necessary to make a port incision below the clavicle using local anesthesia. When the catheter is connected to the port, the port is introduced under the skin and into the neck vein, and the catheter is likewise entered beneath the skin and into the neck vein with the port attached to the port. The incision is sealed with sutures that dissolve on their own and do not need to be removed.

The procedure for removing a port catheter is similar, but it does not necessitate the puncture of a vein. A comparable incision will be performed once the skin has been cleansed with an antiseptic solution and a local anesthetic has been administered. Incision is closed utilizing self-absorbing sutures after the port and catheter have been withdrawn from the patient’s body. The insertion of a port is less time-consuming and usually does not necessitate the use of anesthesia.
