PleurX catheter can be used in place of a chest tube to deliver talc or bleomycin for chemical pleurodesis procedures
Drain fluid as directed by doctor, usually every one to two days
While draining fluid three times in a row and each time less than 50 mL drains into the bottle, then seeing a doctor to find out if the catheter can be removed or if it needs to be replaced is suggested

Active vacuum technology:
- The active vacuum technology lets patients drain quickly and comfortably without the need for gravity
Proprietary safety valve:
- The catheter valve keeps air or fluid from inadvertently passing through the catheter
Polyester cuff:
- The polyester cuff on the catheter promotes tissue ingrowth, helping reduce risk of infection and hold the catheter in place

Indications:
- Intermittent, long term drainage of symptomatic, recurrent, pleural effusion
- Malignant pleural effusion and other recurrent effusions that do not respond to medical management of the underlying disease
- Palliation of dyspnea due to pleural effusion
- Providing pleurodesis (resolution of the pleural effusion)
