Jackson-Pratt® Hemaduct® Wound Drains allow multiple fluid pathways should soft tissue obstructions restrict continuous fluid flow, throughout the drain. The drain is comprised of both open and closed channels that are interconnected by internal portals that span the length of the drain. Should soft tissue obstructions in-grow into an open channel, the internal portals allow fluid to change channels and find alternative pathways around the obstructions.
This advanced design offers the following advantages:
- Internal portals - Internal portals interconnect open and closed channels to allow fluid to change channels and circumvent obstructions
- Open channels - Open channels span the length of the drain and maximize fluid collection potential
- Closed channels - Closed channels minimize the risk of tissue ingrowth while providing an alternative pathway for fluid
- Silicone advantage - Silicone material provides strength and softness
