What is it about?
One lumen of the drainage is used for negative pressure application the other is used for intestinal feeding. A long spontanous transmural ruptur of the esophagus was treated solely with the novel drain device. No operation was required. Reason of the perforation was a bolus in a pseudodivertikulosis of esophagus.
Why is it important?
The drainage enables intestinal feeding and negative pressure treatment, simultanously.
