ASEPT® Peritoneal Drainage System
Countries of availability:
The ASEPT® peritoneal drainage system serves the regular drainage of recurring and symptomatic ascites. The catheter is designed for the gaining of long-term access to the peritoneal cavity in order to relieve symptoms such as dyspnoea.
For the drainage of pleural effusion please choose the ASEPT™ Pleural Drainage System.
Safety valve The ASEPT® valve closes automatically, is easy to clean and connects the catheter with the drainage bottle in an especially hygienic way. No end caps or fixations are required. The valve even works without play and safely after numerous connections have been made.
Minimally invasive The catheter is inserted in the pleural or peritoneal cavity by means of the Seldinger technique – this minimises the risk of internal organs being injured. The intervention which is carried out under a local anaesthetic can take place whether as an inpatient or as an outpatient.
Minimised dislocation risk A polyester cuff is positioned in the tunnel subcutaneously, adheres and thereby minimises the dislocation risk.
