Capillary wound drains are open wound drains, used in various procedures to drain fluid away from the wound. The NSC versions are manufactured in high quality soft and flexible silicone which is placed in a wound after surgery to prevent the build up of fluid and reduce infection.

The drains are known as Penrose capillary drains and are ideal for use in hand and foot surgery, plastic surgery, ENT surgery and other general procedures.

The NSC range of capillary wound drains includes perforated, unperforated and corrugated. We carry only certain lines in stock, other sizes are available but these are not stocked lines.

Corrugated drains and flat strip drains are used to drain fluid on to a gauze pad or bandage and are open wound drains. This is used when the wound must be kept open.
