DRAINTEC-Spear


DRAINTEC-Spear


The first step of a sophisticated drainage system consists of the sterile placement of the drain. Due to its special design, the DRAINTEC® -spear used appropriately ensures that there is absolutely no risk of contamination. The spear is an integral component both of the wound drainage system and the refusion system and affords drainage without any disconnection of parts:

  1. At the blunt end, a disposable guiding tube is slipped over the guiding rod and under the cuff until the end of the cuff impedes any further advance. Thus the tip of the guiding tube is protected while the device penetrates the skin, and remains free of contamination.
  2. Under vision the DRAINTEC® spear with guiding tube is advanced through muscle, subcutis, and cutis proceeding from inside to outside.
  3. The DRAINTEC® spear is removed from the guiding tube. At a later time, the device can be re-processed and re-used.
  4. The drain is inserted into the external end of the guiding tube and advanced to the site of the wound. This procedure assures that there is no risk of contamination.
  5. The guiding tube is withdrawn from the site of the wound along the drain, then opened at the strip, pulled from the drainage tube, and discarded.



Thus a closed-circuit drainage system is established
