Medical - Medical (general) / coronary bypass surgery
Italian term or phrase: drenaggi declivi
This comes at the end of a description of a patient's coronary bypass surgery:

"Sospensione della CEC ... Rimozione delle cannule ... Emostasi ... Sintesi della sternotomia secondo i piani anatomici su due *drenaggi declivi*."

For the word "declivio" (singular of "declivi") I find "slant" or "slope" ... but it doesn't help me find the right expression for this type of drain.

How would we say "drenaggi declivi" in English? And about the Italian word "su" ... would it be translated as closure of the sternotomy over/on/with these drains?

Grazie di nuovo.
