Tunneled Pleural Catheter in Houston, Texas
Patients who have recurrent pleural fluid (excess fluid in the chest) can have issues breathing, chest pain, coughing and discomfort. Synergy Vascular and Interventional specializes in placing a tunneled pleural catheter tube under the skin within the chest to help relieve these symptoms. The pleural fluid is drained by the patient at home using a collection system, avoiding numerous trips to the hospital.
