siphon drainage or Buelau's method
Explanation:
Siphon drainage can be found in both Bunjes and Pschyrembel, Bunjes also lists Buelau's method (or probably Bülau's method - although he does give ue instead of ü)

See explanation from Pschyrembel below:
Bülau-Drainage (Gotthard B., Int., Hamburg, 1835-1900; Drainage*) f: Pleuradrainage, Thoraxdrainage; Meth. zur fortlaufenden Entfernung von Luft od. Flüssigkeit aus der Pleurahöhle;
Prinzip: Einführen eines Drainageschlauchs über einen Führungsspieß; bei Pneumothorax meist im 2. od. 3. ICR medioklavikular (Lagerung des Schlauchs in Höhe der oberen Thoraxapertur); bei Sero-, Hämato-, Pyothorax im 5. od. 6. ICR der vorderen od. mittleren Axillarlinie; Drainage anstelle der ursprüngl. Heberdrainage* durch permanenten Sog von 5-20 cm H2O (Saugdrainage*).

Explanation:
I'd say as soon as a procedure is named after someone the whole becomes a name itself in which case it does not need to be translated (fully), so to make a long story short, I say Go for Bülau drainage.

Cheerio,

Altavista hits for +bülau +drainage (German) : 20
Strangely in (English) only 2 (see above) and none listed in Dorlands, Bunjex nor Reuter & Reuter.
For the humorous side (there is one to nearly anything):
>>Anmerkung für Fachkräfte:
Natürlich liegt die Gefahr bei der Bülaudrainage weniger im Wegsaugen des Patienten als im gefürchteten Pneumothorax! Wer ihn nicht gesehen hat, kann ihn hier kennenlernen:<<
