Abstract

The use of central venous catheters (CVC) has greatly facilitated the delivery of chemotherapeutic agents and is one of the most important aspects of the supportive care of patients with cancer. The most frequently utilized central venous catheters in cancer care include totally implanted catheter systems and single or multilumen tunneled catheters. Despite the convenience of use of CVC, thrombosis and infection remain frequent and serious complications of these devices [1]. This chapter will address the different types of catheter-related thrombosis as well as their diagnosis and management.
