This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The review aims to compare the success rate and safety of three commonly used techniques for implanting totally implantable venous access ports (TIVAPs); the venous cutdown technique, the Seldinger technique and the newly described modified Seldinger technique. The review will include studies that use doppler or real time two-dimensional ultrasonography for locating the vein in the Seldinger technique.
