Republican workshop on implantation of Vital-Port« systems
Oncological disease especially in advanced form is a clear indication for prescribing a long-term intravenous infusion of chemotherapy drugs. For such clinical cases abroad, implantation of venous port systems is considered a ôgold standardö. Such invasive manipulation reduces the risk of complications related to long-term intravenous infusions. Cook Medical Vital-Port« systems are widely used abroad and have a broad range of titanium and light-weight polysulfone ports including the ports for contrast medium injection and low-profile miniports for peripheral placement.
To train physicians how to implant Vital-Port« systems in Belarus, as per Ministry of Health directive ╣673, a practical seminar for oncologists, nurses, angio suites and intensive care units specialists of oncology departments of Minsk hospitals and regional centers was held. The seminar was organized at Alexandrov Cancer Center on 27 June 2015. Prof. Dr. Markus Zähringer, Medical Director of diagnostics and interventional radiology at Marienhospital in Stuttgart, took part at the event. Participants had a chance to discuss the problems of venous access for oncology patients going through chemotherapy treatment while Prof. Zähringer headed a workshop on implantation of 2 central and 2 peripheral ports. Every healthcare practitioner attending the workshop received a training certificate.
Reducing the risk of complications related to long-term intravenous infusions is a high-priority task for the healthcare industry, tackling which will not only enhance the quality of healthcare services but will also help cut hospitals costs and save hospitals budgets.
