When you need medicines delivered directly to your veins over an extended period, it often requires surgical placement of a chest port. A chest port is a device that’s connected to the large vein that empties into your heart.
A chest port needs proper maintenance and care to ensure you heal properly. The interventional radiology team at the University of Miami Health System are experts in helping you understand how to care for and maintain your chest port.
