The OFD is a new drain for Endoscopic Negative Pressure Therapy (ENPT).
Various disadvantages of ENPT with drains using polyurethane foams are eliminated.
The advantages are:
- minimal diameter (4-6 mm or narrower)
- possibility of direct transnasal placement
- drainage element of any length 1-25 cm or even longer
- optimal drainage of fluids
- intracavitary and intraluminal ENPT
- single lumen drains
- double lumen drains with integrated feeding tube
- full surface suction effect
- less adhesion to tissue
- experience with esophagus, stomach and duodenum
- complimentary therapy with polyurethane foam drains
- easy to make and use
On the following articles and videos you will find first experience reports and construction notes for the making of the drainage tool, which is currently not available for purchase.
