    Venous access and mediport  
When patients need frequent medications administered directly into the blood stream, a device, called a port is surgically implanted to allow access to the venous system. A port consists of a reservoir where the medication is injected and a catheter (or tube) that allows the medication to enter the blood stream. This procedure is done as an outpatient and light physical activity can usually be resumed immediately. Also, the port can be used immediately after recovery. The port can remain indefinitely or until you no longer require the medication therapy. If you are advised to have a Mediport, you have an experienced and compassionate choice with Dr Prylinski.
