It is a painless procedure used to obtain samples for histopathological diagnosis of deep-seated lesions or tumors in the liver or abdomen. Almost all of these procedures are performed in a daycare setting using local anesthesia and guided by USG or CT imaging. This allows for the sampling of multiple lesions while avoiding open surgical sampling.
Drainage (Liver Abscess)
It is a minimally invasive procedure done under USG/CT guidance and involves either percutaneous aspiration or putting a drainage catheter in the liver abscess.
To drain the abscess, a catheter is inserted through the skin and into the liver. Additionally, you will take antibiotics for 4 to 6 weeks. Sometimes the illness can be cured by using only antibiotics. Liver abscesses now have a significantly better prognosis because of innovative drainage methods and medications tailored for the right organisms.
Abdominal Collection Drainage
An accumulation of abscess or infectious fluid inside the abdomen that is encompassed by inflamed tissue is known as an intra-abdominal abscess. Any abdominal organ may be affected, or it may find a place in the bowel’s crevices. In this quick treatment, the infection is located by passing a needle through the skin. You will be given a sedative and local anesthesia by your healthcare provider to help you relax and get rid of any pain or discomfort while the procedure is being done. Percutaneous abscess drainage is typically performed to remove contaminated bodily fluid, most frequently from the pelvis and abdomen.
