Overview

Surgery is not the first-line treatment option for patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Surgery

Surgery plays a small role in the treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia. Surgery is used to place a venous access device as a port through which chemotherapy can be delivered. The port is susceptible to infection and therefore must be cared for appropriately. There is a risk for infection with port placement.[1]
