On the occasion of the celebration of the National Congress of Vascular Access and with the invaluable collaboration of the Professor Sergio Bertoglio, the Critical Care Division of Palex Medical organized the first Symposium workshop in Spain about the PICC-PORT technique.
Coinciding with the launching of the new line of Vascular Access of Palex Medical, the last November 14th took place the first Symposium devoted to the PICC-PORT in SEINAV (National Congress of Vascular Access).
