Abstract
Head and neck abscess usually requires hospitalization, intravenous antibiotic therapy, and surgical incision and drainage. Open surgical drainage may result in unsightly scars. We report two cases of a 56-year-old man with a facial abscess and a 47-year-old man with a parotid abscess. The patients were successfully treated with ultra-sound-guided angiocatheter irrigation and drainage without scar. Ultrasound-guided angiocatheter irrigation and drainage can be a simple, safe and effective alternative procedure to open surgery in the management of the se-lected head and neck abscesses.
Key Words: Head and neck abscess, Angiocatheter, Irrigation and drainage, Angiocatheter
