Abscess Drainage

Abscess (sometimes referred to as a pus collection) is a cavity filled with pus and surrounded by the membrane of inflammatory tissue. Depending on its size and localization, it can be treated conservatively by antibiotics, by surgical excision or by insertion of drainage tube. Percutaneous tube placement is minimally invasive procedure, which results in shorter hospital stay and faster recovery period. As such, in well-considered cases it is advantageous compared to surgery.
