Easy to Apply Negative Pressure with Injector as an Active Mini Drain System
There are many drainage systems that can take off substances from body such as pus, blood, serum, lymph or intestinal content. The most important feature for the selection of appropriate drainage system to be used is the volume and viscosity of the liquid . The ideal drainage system should be soft and non-irritant in order not to cause damage to the healty tissues . Furtermore, the drain must be stiff and can be fixed to tissue. Many diffrent drainage systems have been defined for use postoperative surgery period. The drainage systems work as active-passive or open-closed. Closed drains are preferred by most surgeons, because open drains are more likely to cause infection than closed drains. Drainage systems based on pressure are divided into two; active and passive drains . Active drains uses pressure and are more effective in preventing the formation of hematomas. Collector is designed as injector which can be find in every operation room and the injectors has no high collecting capacity, so we have called that system mini-drain. In this study, it is aimed to introduce a drainage system which works as closed and active, is prepared by an injector under operation conditions.
