Indication for Surgery in AIDS-Patients: Implantable i.v. Port Systems

Summary

In a series of 48 intravenous port systems implanted in AIDS-patients severe postoperative complications were not significantly different from a series of tumor patients (10,4% vs. 7,3%). We recommend the intravenous port system as the method of choice in AIDS-patients providing a safe intravenous access with a low rate of complications and a low risk of contamination for the medical staff. The results show that surgery in AIDS-patients should not be restricted to emergency situations.
