We are using this fixation device less and less in our institution as it is fiddly to deploy and the adhesive part of the device often becomes unstuck after a few days, which means the catheter is no longer fixed to the skin. We find the clinical and nursing teams on the wards do not particularly like managing these devices.
Having said that, the sutures in the device do grip any drain very reliably so if the skin can be well dried before application and there is unlikely to be leakage around the drain entry site then this is a reasonable option.

Have you ever talked with your patients about this device? While it is \"slick\" how long does the device actually stick to the skin after showering several times? What happens when the drain site leaks bile?

Have used this device for PTC drainage catheters for a few years. It is excellent so long as you dry the skin very well before you try to stick to the skin and get the drain very central. I would not use any of the other devices if this is on the shelf.
