Title:
Short-term and long-term outcome of radiological-guided insertion of central venous access port devices implanted at the forearm: a retrospective monocenter analysis in 1704 patients. 
Abstract:
The objectives are to analyze the technical success rate as well as the short-term and long-term complications of totally implantable venous access ports (TIVAPs) at the forearm.Retrospective analysis of 1,704 consecutively implanted TIVAPs was performed.

Minor complications not requiring port explantation were defined as secondary endpoints.The technical success...    »
