Abstract:

For doing systemic chemotherapy, central venous ports are used to access central veins and internal jugular vein. Installing these devices though can be with complications on the side which cause them function limits. In this text a case is presented in which after installing a complete and intact port, some malfunction was detected in the chemotherapy procedure after several months which leads us to port Malposition which is probably caused by the huge soft tissue of patient’s breast. This can be prevented simply by installing the port primarily in the zone with less soft tissue.
