    Summary of Dr. Mueller ESTS Lubiana 2018 Poster on Redax Coaxial Thoracic Drain Performance

    The Department of Thoracic Surgery, Otto-Wagner Hospital, Sigmund Freud University Medical Faculty in Vienna, Austria released the findings from an independent clinical study comparing Redax Coaxial drains to conventional chest tubes. The Redax Coaxial was introduced to the Thoracic Surgery Department as having the unique ability to effectively remove air through an internal lumen with distal bores while simultaneously collecting fluid through its external fluted profile. The Coaxial is also promoted to enhance flow and maintain patency due to its direct high-flow transition from the in-dwelling design to a single bore tube.

    The Clinical Study

    One hundred thirty-six lung lobectomy patients were randomly selected to receive either a 24Fr conventional tube or a 24Fr Coaxial drain. The study compared:

    • Air Flow
    • Fluid Amount
    • Subcutaneous Emphysema
    • Tube Occlusion
    • Drain Duration

    The Clinical Findings

    Similar results were found in reference to air leakage and drainage volumes, however:

    • Subcutaneous Emphysema occurred in
      • 50% of patients with conventional tubes
      • 40% of patients with Coaxial drains
    • Tube Occlusion was observed in
      • 30% of patients with conventional tubes
      • 5% of patients with Coaxial drains
    • Drain Duration occurred
      • 7 to 4 days with conventional tubes
      • 6 to 3 days with Coaxial drains

    The Clinical Conclusion

    The Coaxial drain is efficient in evacuating leaking air while its use is associated with lower incidence of emphysema and drain occlusion as compared to the conventional tube. In addition, the Coaxial drain was associated with shorter chest tube duration and related shorter hospitalization.
