The "peel away" sheath in drainage procedures.

Traversing various tissues during drainage procedures may be difficult because of inadequate track development. We have successfully used the peel-away sheath, previously described in conjunction with vascular procedures, to facilitate the placement of larger, softer, and more pliable catheters through resistant parenchyma.
