This patient had a history of right breast cancer requiring chemotherapy via a Portacath but her original catheter in her left chest became infected after one week and was removed. A catheter in the right side was contraindicated due to her surgical axillary clearance. She then had her treatment successfully completed via a Interventional Radiologist-inserted tunnelled left abdominal Portacath with a common femoral vein puncture (under US-guidance).
