Purpose
Central venous access ports (CVAP) are widely used to provide long-term vascular access for the delivery of chemotherapeutic medications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes and complications following CVAP implantation in the interventional radiology suite.

Material and methods
A retrospective analysis was conducted on 937 oncology patients who underwent CVAP implantation between January 2009 and June 2017. Information regarding patient characteristics, operative data, and procedural outcomes was collected and analysed.

Results
A total of 937 patients scheduled for CVAP were included in the final analysis. Initial success was achieved in 930 patients (99.3%), and overall completion was achieved in 933 patients (99.6%). There were 63 complications overall. Among these, 19 (2.0%) occurred during the intra- and perioperative period and 44 were late complications (4.7%). No CVAP-related mortalities were observed.

Conclusions
The analysis in the present study revealed that the CVAP is a safe and effective route for long-term administration of chemotherapy with an overall complication rate of 6.7% throughout the entire device duration. The CVAP implantation procedure carried out in the interventional radiology suite provides an advantage in the management of procedural, vascular and catheter-related complications.
