Incision and Drainage Versus Needle Aspiration in Soft Tissue Abscesses

2014-08-27 03:15:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The incidence of skin and soft tissue infections has increased dramatically over the last decade, in part due to increased prevalence of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA). Incision and drainage (I&D) is considered the primary intervention, however some clinicians prefer ultrasound guided needle aspiration (US Asp). The investigators performed a randomized trial comparing US Asp to I&D for uncomplicated skin and soft tissue abscesses, with a subgroup analysis of patients with CA-MRSA.

Comparison of Ultrasound-Guided Needle Aspiration and Open Incision and Drainage for Cutaneous Abscesses

The investigators propose to conduct a, two armed, randomized, controlled pilot study to assess the clinical effects of a) open incision, drainage with daily packing changes, compared to b...

Ultrasound Guided Aspiration of Hydrosalpingeal Fluid and IVF-ET Outcomes

The aim of this study is to determine whether the ultrasound guided aspiration of hydrosalpingeal fluid at the time of oocyte retrieval can improve the outcomes of IVF-ET .

Aquacel Versus Iodoform Gauze for Filling Abscess Cavity Following Incision and Drainage

This study compares Aquacel against routine Iodoform packing for packing abscess cavities after incision and drainage. It is hypothesized that Aquacel will produce speedier healing of the ...

Prospective Trial for Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Gallbladder Drainage for Acute Cholecystitis in High Risk Patients

The investigators would like to conduct a prospective, randomized non-inferiority study to compare clinical outcome between endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided gallbladder drainage and perc...

Evaluation of the diagnostic utility of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration for metastatic mediastinal tumors.

The mediastinum is a relatively uncommon site of distant metastases, which typically appear as peripheral lung nodules. We chose to assess the utility of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial...

Simple Technique for Transvaginal Aspiration of a Tubo-Ovarian Abscess.

Large tubo-ovarian abscesses (TOAs) usually require drainage or operative management in addition to antibiotics. All previous reports of transvaginal aspiration have been described utilizing a needle/...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.

The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.

A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.

A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.

Breathing in liquid or solids, such as stomach contents, into the RESPIRATORY TRACT. When this causes severe lung damage, it is called ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
