Implantable port - image description

This illustration shows an implantable port, which lies just under the skin of the chest.  An implantable port is a thin, soft, plastic tube that is put into a vein in your chest or arm and has an opening (port) just under the skin. A special needle called a Huber needle passes through the skin and into the port. This allows medicines to be given into the vein or blood to be taken from the vein.
