French term or phrase: double drainage péricardique aspiratif
In a heart surgery report: "Fermeture à l'ordinaire sur un double drainage péricardique aspiratif ainsi qu'un drainage pleural droit aspiratif"...I've tentatively translated this as "Closed in the usual manner on a double pericardium suction drain and a right pleural suction drain". But I'm Google-guessing...would appreciate any expert advice as to whether this is right or wrong, or can be expressed better. TIA.
