Edip Gonullu, Serdar Yesiltas, Doğan Koca, Abdurrahman AYCAN, Erkan Dogan.


Port catheterization, which can be practically applied by various clinical and surgical branches in our country, is an extremely comfortable procedure in patient groups requiring long-term parenteral treatment, especially malignancy patients. In this study, 156 patients who underwent port catheterization by an anesthesiologist after the approval of the local ethics committee were evaluated retrospectively. The procedure was performed in 98.1% of the patients due to malignancy (esophagus Ca: 37.3%, stomach: 24.8%). The most common application part was the right internal jugular vein (65.4%). Sixty-two patients required 2 or more punctures. Port was removed due to port pocket infection in 1.9% of the patients. In this study, we presented our port catheterization experience and aimed to contribute to the national literature.
