Percutaneous drainage of 35 pelvic abscesses secondary to pelvic inflammatory salpingitis are reported. Two methods of drainage were used: simple aspiration and catheter drainage. The success rate of aspiration drainage was 94 per cent, while catheter drainage yielded a 77 per cent success rate. The differences between pelvic abscess drainage and other types of percutaneous drainage are presented. The role of percutaneous drainage in the treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease is also discussed.
