Frequently Asked Questions

Malignant ascites is fluid buildup in your abdomen, which causes abdominal pressure and discomfort.

Pleural effusions are fluid buildup around your lungs, which can cause breathing difficulty.

The PleurX™ system lets you drain fluid at home and on your own schedule, so you can manage fluid buildup before it becomes even more uncomfortable. For most patients, drainage takes approximately five to 15 minutes. You drain fluid on your schedule, without needing to visit the doctor when your fluid builds up.The PleurX™ drainage system is a safe, proven option that has provided relief to over 300,000 patients since 1997.

Ask your doctor if it is a good choice for treating your malignant ascites or pleural effusions. If you and your doctor decide that PleurX™ is an option, you will get the PleurX™ catheter placed in your chest cavity (for pleural effusions) or abdomen (for malignant ascites), which can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

After the PleurX™ catheter is placed into your chest cavity or abdomen, the end of the catheter stays outside of your body, covered by a thin, protective dressing while not in use. To drain fluid, simply connect the end of the catheter to the drainage line on the PleurX™ drainage bottle in accordance with the PleurX™ drainage procedure directions for use. The vacuum bottle automatically draws out the fluid through the tube.

Your doctor or nurse will train you on using the PleurX™ drainage bottles. Basically, you will simply connect the end of the tube to the drainage line on the PleurX™ drainage bottle. The bottle contains a vacuum that automatically draws out the fluid through the catheter. A caregiver can also help you drain the fluid.

The end of the PleurX™ catheter stays outside of your body, covered by a thin dressing that people cannot see under clothing. Nobody has to know that you use the PleurX™ system if you do not want them to.
