Résumé
We report on our experience in the use of a new system of a totally implantable device for repeated vascular access in children, developed in 1989 by Pharmacia and named P.A.S. Port (Peripheral Access System Port). The P.A.S. Port is far smaller than other systems and has been designed for peripheral location in the arm. This avoids unsightly pectoral scars particularly in girls and allows insertion under local anesthesia. It is an interesting alternative to the Port-a-Cath for children older than 5 years of age. It is easily accepted by the patient as well as by the caring team.
