About Venous Access Management

Venous access may be necessary for a number of reasons, including the infusion of intravenous medication and nutrition, and blood sampling. At Star Vascular Access Center, we offer placement and removals for ports.

Ports

Implantable ports are used to facilitate long term intravenous (IV) access, for example, to administer chemotherapy for cancer treatment. The implantable port is placed under the skin and has a small reservoir attached to a catheter which connects to a vein. An implantable port may be permanent, or it may be removed if it is determined that the patient no longer requires a port for access in the near future.
