Single-lumen Open-pore Film Drainage (OFD)

How to construct a single-lumen OFD?

The new small-bore device is used in endoscopic vacuum therapy with small openings. Video shows construction of open-pore film drainage (OFD)

Material for construction of an OFD: openpore Drainagefilm (oF, CNP Drainagefilm Lohmann&Rauscher), gastro-duodenal tube (T), suture (S)

Double-lumen Open-pore Film Drainage (OFD)

How to construct a double-lumen OFD?

The new device is used for reflux drainage after Ivor-Lewis resection and enables enteral feeding simultanously. Video shows construction of OFD.

Openpore film (oF) is wrapped surround the gastric openings of a Trilumina-tube, intestinal feeding tube (IC), ventilation channal (V) is blocked (b) with a clamp.

Pull-through Open-pore Film Drainages

How to construct a pull-through OFD?

The new devices are used to insert a drainage in pull-through technique. Video shows construction of OFD.

New pull-through drainages: openpore polyurethane-foam (OPD), openpore polyurthane-foam covered with film (OPFD), openpore film drainage (OFD), diameter is sized down.
