TRU-CLOSE® Thoracic Vent


The red signal diaphragm deflects upwards when the catheter tip enters the pleural space. It then continues to fluctuate with respiration as the intrapleural pressure varies from > +2mm Hg to <-2mm Hg.

When the signal diaphragm stays in the down position and the patient is asymptomatic the pneumothorax may be resolved.


Over-the-wire inserction using optional

Insertion Cannula (for TV11-13)

Quick and easy insertion using

trocar and red signal diaphragm.

Double-valved aspiration cannula allows
