Improving patients' quality of life

With our indwelling catheters for recurrent pleural fluid and ascites, you provide patients with continuous symptom relief and improved quality of life. The patient can often be discharged from hospital at the same time as the catheter insertion. Then the patient can either drain the fluid themselves at home, or with the help of relatives or home health care.

This form of treatment restores the patient’s quality of life, effectively relieves symptoms and at the same time reduces the burden on hospital resources.

PleurX catheter

The earlier in the course of the disease the catheter is inserted, the greater the benefit to the patient

Repeated thoracentesis or paracentesis lead to more hospital visits, increased risk of needlestick injuries and infections, and unnecessary anxiety as well as distressing symptoms for the patient. Therefore, it is important to pay attention when the patient is drained of fluids for the second time so that an indwelling catheter can be offered instead of the third drain.

International guidelines for malignant pleural effusion and ascites clearly state that indwelling catheters should be considered for early treatment. Studies on benign pleural effusion and ascites also show good results.

In addition to a high patient benefit, the treatment method also offers a lower cost than alternative treatment methods because it saves hospital days and all associated costs.
