The original concept of percutaneous, radiological abscess drainage was confined to well circumscribed, solitary abscesses, that could be reached by a short access avoiding transgression of uninvolved organs or compartments. With increasing experience criteria for percutaneous abscess drainage have been expanded to radiological treatment of pancreatic, periappendiceal, diverticular, interloop and mediastinal abscesses and fluid collections. The authors present their experience with percutaneous treatment of such "complicated" abscesses in 140 patients.
