Persistent Thorasic Airleak After İmplantation of a Subcutaneously Port-Chamber Catheter

1.1. Introduction: Persistent thorasic airleak is a rare complication after totally implantable port-chamber catheter(PCC) implantation. Prolonged airleaks are undesirable because they prolong the duration of chest tube drainage with associated pain and risk of infection and they also prolong hospitalization. In cancer patients, it is important to prevent this rare complication and to recognize it early if it does occur.
