The article describes the complications, adverse reactions and problems associated with long-term chemotherapy, as well as the solution to one of the most common difficulties — ensuring long-term venous access. According to world standards, the implantation of venous port system is a routine procedure, however, in Ukraine this method is still in its infancy. In our practice, the implantation of venous port systems is a daily reality, and it is carried out according to the relevant standards in sterile operating room, with ultrasound control and navigation, the appropriate examination and preparing the patient for implantation. In 8 months, 32 port systems have been implanted, and the positive aspects of such venous access are undeniable.
