Equip your patients to manage recurrent pleural effusions, at home

Contact Us



The PleurX™ Pleural Catheter System is indicated for intermittent, long term drainage of symptomatic, recurrent, pleural effusion, including malignant pleural effusions and other recurrent effusions that do not respond to medical management of the underlying disease.

The device is indicated for the palliation of dyspnea due to pleural effusion and providing pleurodesis (resolution of the pleural effusion).


Features and Benefits
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.
New indication

The PleurX™ catheter can be used in place of a chest tube to deliver talc or bleomycin for chemical pleurodesis procedures.
