Reply To: Vortex Ports

October 4, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I just had my port removed after many years and I really missed it recently as the hospital could not start an IV on my due to all the scar tissue from so many years of poking. They took out my port since I moved to SubQ last year. I had the nurse ask me in the ER if I had a Power port and I had never heard that term. I had just a regular implanted valve port or cath.

What is a powerport?
