Bottom Line: We recommend an alternative drainage method using chest tube binding with a Silastic Penrose drainage tube.The use of a Silastic Penrose drainage tube may help to manage mediastinitis with abscess formation.This method facilitates effective draining and prevents tissue adhesion.

ABSTRACT
Mediastinitis is a life-threatening disease, and effective drainage is needed to treat mediastinitis with abscess formation. We recommend an alternative drainage method using chest tube binding with a Silastic Penrose drainage tube. The use of a Silastic Penrose drainage tube may help to manage mediastinitis with abscess formation. This method facilitates effective draining and prevents tissue adhesion.

f3-kjtcv-48-378: This computed tomography image shows (A) a mediastinal abscess and (B) mediastinal drainage using a chest tube with a Silastic Penrose drainage tube in the mediastinal space.

Mentions: We recommend the use of three fixations between the chest tube and the Silastic Penrose drainage tube. Large-bore sutures are preferred to fix the tube. We have used this chest tube in the management of acute mediastinitis for the last 10 years. Over 20 patients have been treated with this drainage tube (Fig. 3). This type of chest tube may be another method for managing mediastinal abscesses.
