Percutaneous Abcess Drainage

An abscess is an infected fluid collection within the body.Percutaneous Abscess drainage is a minimaly invasive procedure that can be used to treat the abscess
  • An interventional radiologist uses imaging guidance (CT, ultrasound or fluoroscopy) to place a thin needle into the abscess to remove or drain the infected fluid from an area of the body such as the chest, abdomen or pelvis.
  • Usually, a small drainage tube is left in place for a while to drain the abscess fluid. Occasionally, abscess that can't be treated by percutaneous drainage may require surgical drainage in the operating room
