The central venous port has been widely used for patients who require long-term intravenous treatments, and the number of palcement has been increasing. The Japanese Society of Interventional Radiology developed a guideline for central venous port placement and management to provide evidence-based recommendations to support healthcare providers in the decision-making process regarding the central venous port. The guideline consisted of two parts: (i) a comprehensive review of topics including preoperative preparation, techniques for placement or removal, complications, and maintenance methods and (ii) recommendations for the six clinical questions regarding blood vessels for central venous port placement, port implantation site, prophylactic antibiotic therapy, imaging guidance for puncture, disinfectant prior to accessing the central venous port, and the optimal procedure at the end of drug administration via the central venous port, generated on the basis of the rating quality of evidence by systematic review.
