, PleurX Drainage System – Drainage Kits & Accessories

Consisting of an indwelling catheter and vacuum bottles, the PleurX™ system is designed to assist patients with managing pleural effusions and malignant ascites from home. This arrangement allows patients to drain fluid buildup in a safe and efficient manner and provides access to addition training and educational tools.

How It Works

Once the catheter is implanted, typically after an outpatient procedure, the patient has the option of using the PleurX™ system to drain fluids periodically without visiting the hospital for a regular paracentesis or thoracentesis procedure.

With the catheter in place, the patient simply has to use a vacuum bottle to remove the fluids – a process that usually takes five to 15 minutes.

For chemical pleurodesis procedures, patients may also use the PleurX™ catheter in place of a chest tube to directly deliver talc or bleomycin to help control pleural effusion.

Nearly 20 years of clinical use and research published in 30 peer-reviewed journals support the PleurX™ system:

  • The system offers patients rapid symptom relief.
  • Infection rates are less than 3%.
  • Patients experience fewer hospital visits for paracentesis and thoracentesis.
  • 46% of patients have experienced Spontaneous pleurodesis.
  • The system is utilized by thoracic surgery, pulmonology, interventional pulmonology and interventional radiology specialists.


Active vacuum technology eliminates the need for gravity to drain the fluids and allows the patient to complete the procedure without medical assistance.

A proprietary safety valve prevents both air and fluids from accidentally entering the catheter.

To reduce infection and support the catheter, the PleurX™ system adds a polyester cuff to the catheter to stimulate tissue ingrowth.
