Implantable ports are intended for patients who require long-term intravenous (IV) medication. The port is usually placed just under the skin on the upper part of the chest wall. Navilyst Medical's Vaxcel® Ports with PASV® Valve Technology provide features critical to positive outcomes for patients requiring venous access. The Vaxcel Port with PASV Valve Technology has a proximally located, direction-specific valve that is designed to resist backflow and maintain patency between uses.
