TITAN-PORT Systems are totally implantable port catheter systems consisting of an injection chamber (port), a screw closure machanism, a self-sealing silicone membrane and a catheter. Each system includes a special access needle, a dilatator, catheter introducer, these instructions for use and a patient ID-card. Some sets contain introduction instruments and tunnelizers.

The portal chamber is made of hypoallergenic biocompatible titanium. This material is non-magnetic. The base plate has
holes for securing the system to the fascia with sutures.The portal chamber and the catheter can be disconnected.

The silicone membrane can be punctured frequently (up to 3000 times) with a suitable special needle, e.g. the enclosed SFN non-coring access needle. The membrane is highly resistant to pressure and holds the inserted needle reliably in place.

The catheter (various models, sizes and materials - depending on indication) can be shortened proximally to the individual length required. It bears calibration markings at 5 cm length intervals and is conically tapered at the tip. It has an additional opening at the side (especially to facilitate blood sampling). The arterial catheter has two additional distal fixation rings.

Introduction instruments include a puncture needle, a guide wire, and a dilatator which facilitate introduction of catheters into the blod vessels via Seldinger's technique. The tunnelizer aids in passing the catheter through the subcutaneous tissues.

Only special non-coring portal access needles (e.g. SFN portneedles) should be used to puncture the port membrane. The needles exhibit a unique bevel and angle at the tip. This prevents punch defects of the membrane when the needle is inserted. Different lengths and diameters are available. 22 G or 20 G is recommended for standard use. Each system contains a suitable needle.

The patient ID-card is filled out by the doctor who performed the implantation and is given to the patients who should always carry this document with them. 

The instructions for use should also be available to nurses and doctors responsible for follow-up care.

The TITAN-PORT Systems ensure repeated access to the vascular system for example for the following indications:

In addition, the systems may be used for the following indications:

The TITAN-PORT systems should not be used in:

The following complications or adverse reactions can occur:

Caution: During implantation sterile handling is absolutely mandatory!

To achieve greater flow rates the port membrane may be accessed simultaneously with up to three needles.

(The above-mentioned concentrations are recommendations and must always be adapted to patient's coagulation status as monitored by a physician. The product description of all pharmaceuticals used should always be consulted.)

CAUTION: High-pressure injections not unless patency of the system is confirmed by the physician (aspiration, manual injection). In case of any doubt injection should be avoided!

Causes of abnormally high resistance to access needle may include

CAUTION: When blood aspiration is not successful, the port should be flushed and the patient's position changed.

Blood deposits in the system generally indicate one of the following causes:





Meticulous hygiene and sterile handling technique are mandatory for the safe usage of TITAN-PORT Systems. This includes:


Regular treatment sessions and associated care of the port system are coincidental with monitoring of the port system.
Port systems should not be used be physicians / health care personnel not familiar with all aspects of the product and its potential complications. Complications can occure at any time during and after implantation.


Before each access the correct position of the portal chamber must be checked by palpation.
Any signs of infection must be excluded. Without complications the TITAN-PORT Systems can be used one day after implantation.
