Portacath Insertion - Care of site and use post insertion

I am looking for information regarding the care of the wound as in :

Types of sutures and when to remove

Use of Dermabond

When can we access the port for use - immediate / one week / two weeks post insertion





 Suture type & removal &

 Suture type & removal & deems bond use is determined by the inserted. Port may be used immediately but pt may complain of pain/tenderness in area. Many times the port access needle is left in place from the procedure. Lynn
