I’m looking for information and/or experiences of programs using double-lumen ports for autologous stem cell transplants. We are currently discussing this option for a young adult who will have an auto stem cell infusion with a single agent preparative regimen of Busulfan, in the setting of gene therapy/IND. We anticipate the usual prophylaxis medications, moderate risk of mucositis (needing IV fluid and likely enteral support), moderate risk for VOD, and also the need for aggressive IV analgesia during inpatient stay.
Any thoughts/experience you would consider sharing if you have used a double lumen port for HCT? I realize this may sound challenging, but we’re in an information-gathering stage at this point in time
🙂 Thank you so much – please feel free to reply to the group or privately if that is a more appealing option.
