Current chemotherapy delivery methods and CSF sampling in leukemia pediatric patients represents a challenge with multiple associated risks creating the need for a more efficient technique. The proposed design of a novel intrathecal device was submitted to computer simulation analysis finding promising results regarding the fluid behavior inside the port and the structural performance of the components.
