PleurX® Drainage System

Manage symptoms from pleural effusions or malignant ascites at home

The PleurX® drainage system helps patients be more than their cancer by taking control of uncomfortable and painful symptoms from pleural effusions or malignant ascites. An alternative to repeat paracentesis and thoracentesis procedures, patients can drain their own fluid and focus on more comfortable living at home rather than tiring hours in a hospital or clinic.
