The Redon drain, sometimes simply called Redon, is a flexible tube, made of plastic or silicone, and pierced with numerous holes in a part of its wall. Following surgery, the part with the holes is placed at the surgical site to ensure the drainage of material by suction, from the body to the outside. These drained secretions may consist of blood, pus, bacteria, or various liquids ... The Redon drain then plays a role in promoting the healing of the surgical site and the prevention of infection.
