Central venous access plays a critical role in the management and care of cancer patients. These new ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines apply to central venous access in adult cancer patients and cover the use of peripherally inserted central catheters, tunnelled central catheters and totally implantable devices. The guidelines cover diagnosis and treatment of infections as well as complications requiring the removal of central venous access devices.
