Abstract
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Pelvic abscesses are a well-known complication of intestinal diseases or abdominal surgery. We report our case series concerning transrectal drainage by endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).
METHODS: Between January 2010 and august 2014, seven patients received transrectal drainage by endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) were selected and analyzed.
RESULTS: Two pigtails was positioned under fluoroscopic and EUS control. The success rate was 100% and complication rate was 0%. The median time of hospitalization was 10 days [range 4-25].
CONCLUSIONS: The technique appears to be safe and feasible in all etiologies. In our experience, we can considerate transrectal drainage by EUS like a first-line technique in experienced hands.
