Catheters, Wound, Drainage

Definition : Wound catheters designed to drain liquids and/or semisolids from a wound. These catheters consist of a flexible (e.g., plastic) perforated tube. Sometimes a larger superficial drain catheter is used in addition to a deep drain catheter. These catheters are mostly used to remove blood and other fluids from surgical wounds during a few postoperative days with the intent of preventing formation of a hematoma and promoting wound healing.
