This abstract is about the advantages and disadvantages of two kind of central venous infusion port implanted at different sites, which briefly called chest port and arm port. We introduced the implantation process of both ports, and compared the operation time, the complication rate during and after impalntation of them. A total of 171 cases with central venous port implantation were analyzed, including 95 cases of upper arm port and 76 cases of chest port.There was no significant difference in surgery time between the two groups (t=0.164, P=0.870), and no significant difference in the incidence of complications (χ2=0.164，P=0.897). Our study indicates that arm port can take advantage of PICC nurses’ venipuncture skill and can be a safe access for breast cancer chemotherapy on the basis of strict selection of suitable patients and standardized operation.
