Marsupial® pouch

An adjustable belt and pouch made from plush terry-cloth, worn by patients to comfortably manage commonly used surgical drains and drain tubing, while recovering from breast reconstruction, body lifts, lower abdominoplasty, mastectomy or any surgical procedure where drains are indicated. It is worn under clothing, eliminating the need to tape or pin drainage tubes to undergarments or to hold them while showering.
