PleurX® drainage system

Manage symptoms from pleural effusions or malignant ascites at home

The PleurX® system helps patients take control of uncomfortable and painful symptoms from pleural effusions or malignant ascites. An alternative to repeat paracentesis and thoracentesis, it lets patients drain their own fluid at home rather than spending tiring hours in a hospital or clinic.
