T-Port Contrast

The implantable port system T-Port Contrast made of titanium is used to administer systemic chemotherapy, long-term parenteral nutrition or long-term medication. This port system also permits the high-pressure application of contrast mediums as part of regular tumour staging.

Product Description

Benefits –

Titanium material of proven quality – The excellence material ensures a highly reliable usage.

Suitable for high-pressure applications – The pressure resistance of the systems allows the application of certain substances with high pressure.

Safe identification – The radiopaque CT marking on the bottom of the port ensures safe identification as a high-pressure port.

Connection mechanism – Transparent click-connector as well as secure and reliable fixation of catheter and port chamber.

Knowledge –

The required flow rate and pressure stability (for the injection of contrast media for CT examinations) can be ensured by using a 19 G (1.1 mm) Huber needle from the Jetcan range or with the EZ Huber safety infusion cannula (to avoid needlestick injuries). Both product ranges are available from pfm medical.

Test conditions: High-pressure injector with a set maximum pressure of 21 bar/300 psi; flow rate 5 ml/s; connection tube 1.5 m, 60 s; contrast medium Visipaque® 320 at a temperature of 37 to 38°C; with vascular simulation; Jetcan™ (19 G, 25 mm) Huber needle with extension. Instructions for use and port care advice must be strictly adhered to. Data from in-vitro test series are available on request.
