An abscess is an infected fluid collection within the body. Percutaneous abscess drainage uses imaging guidance to place a needle or catheter through the skin into the abscess to remove or drain the infected fluid. It offers faster recovery than open surgical drainage.
The abscess drainage procedure itself is fairly simple:
Your doctor makes an incision through the numbed skin over the abscess.
