Abstract

Although transrectal drainage of deep pelvic abscess has been reported, the cumulative experience is small. Two cases of deep pelvic abscess treated successfully with transrectal drainage were described. Ultrasound was used as the imaging guidance, providing inexpensive, real-time, multiplanar and radiation-free images that made the procedure quick, accurate and safe.
