[Indications, technique and complications of port implantation].

Implanted central venous access devices are becoming increasingly more important in oncology as an important tool for therapists and patients. As an intracorporeal system with reduced risk of infection compared to percutaneous tunnelled catheters they ensure a permanent and safe access to the central venous system. However, they can be associated with risks and sometimes severe complications which should not be underestimated so that planning and performance of the implantation require a high level of care and attention. Postoperative care and the correct allocation of all groups of persons involved in the therapy can reduce complication rates and are thus of prognostic relevance.
