PORTAS 2, Comparing Venae Sectio Versus Punction of Vena Subclavia for Insertion of a Totally Implantable Access Port (PORTAS2)
The purpose of this trial is to investigate if the success rate of punction the vena subclavia (99% in retrospective studies) will be 15% higher than the success rate of venae sectio (80% in retro and prospective studies) for implantation of a totally implantable access ports.
