Designed to access the pleural cavity for drainage of pleural effusions or delivery of intracavitary infusions

The PleuralPort™, a subcutaneous vascular access port, is designed for veterinary patients, to provide a more comfortable way of gaining repeated access to their pleural cavity for both the delivery of medications (including fluids) and withdrawal of pleural effusions.

Available in 2 sizes, Le Grande for dogs – PP-102K, and Le Port for cats – PP-202K, it is placed during a short surgical procedure. Using a PleuralPort eliminates the need for repeated entry into the pleural space for each treatment and avoids the problems created by an exit site wound. With the PleuralPort, drainage is more efficient and more comfortable for the patient. Access to the pleural cavity is by penetration of the port septum with a specially designed non-coring needle – the Huber point needle. Benefits of the PleuralPort include its subcutaneous location and more efficient fluid drainage
