Catheters, Peritoneal, Percutaneous Drainage
Definition : Peritoneal catheters designed for nonsurgical percutaneous drainage of abdominal abscesses and fluid (both infected and noninfected) collections. Many different catheter and catheter/trocar drainage assemblies have been designed and are in use; their utility for specific clinical application depends on the size of the collection, the nature of the fluid, and the margin of safety of the access route. These catheters are mostly used for drainage of liver, subphrenic, subhepatic and pancreatic abscesses and fluids.
