PleuraPath™ Thoracostomy System shown to be 19% more effective at blood removal

A recent article in the Journal of Thoracic Disease shows significant improvement in blood removal using the PleuraPath™ Thoracostomy System, when compared to a traditional chest tube, in a large-animal model of retained hemothorax. For most serious chest trauma, tube thoracostomy is the definitive treatment. However, traditional chest tubes fail to sufficiently remove blood in up to one-fifth of patients. This is the first published scientific paper describing the new and innovative PleuraPath™ Thoracostomy System. See full article here.
