Teleflex Medical recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of its Pleur-evac
chest drainage product by unveiling [at NTI Atlanta] its baby sister--the new MINI Sahara, a smaller, more portable version of its Sahara unit.
Genzyme Surgical Products, a division of Genzyme Corporation, markets the Pleur-evac line of chest drainage systems.
For more than 30 years, the name Pleur-evac has been synonymous with chest drainage products.
In 1997, Genzyme introduced the Pleur-evac Sahara, the first chest drainage system to combine dry suction and dry seal technology.
