Abstract
A totally implanted venous access system was inserted in 19 children with cancer. The devices were utilized for the administration of antineoplastic drug, parenteral fluids, antibiotics, and blood products. Total duration of implantation was 4,046 days for 23 implanted system (range 7-445 days). Complications included cather infection (0.247/100 catheter day), occlusion (0.692/100 catheter days), and dislodgement of needle (0.643/100 catheter days). There were magor complicatons that necessitated removal of catheters, including systemic infections (0.09/100 catheter days) and complete occlusions(0.09/100 catheter days). The system was thought to be safe and convenient in chemotherapy, and permitted full physical activity.
