    Abstract

    Intravascular catheterization access for injection and sampling is one of the most common experimental surgical procedures.Catheters and ports have been designed to reduce the problems of occlusion, venous thrombosis, and infection. Key issues involve the use of meticulous aseptic technique for implantation of the devices and a "locking" solution that prevents clotting and retention of residues within the catheter.
