About the PleurX drainage system

Manage symptoms of pleural effusions or malignant ascites at home

The PleurX system helps patients manage 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 time in a hospital or clinic.  View all PleurX resources.
