    • 2. Abscesses• University of Illinois, Peoria• One hundred fifteen patients underwent drainage procedures as described; 01/02 - 10-07; Age, 19 days to 20.5 years; Drain duration, 10.4 days (3-24 days); 50% had methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, 26% had methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus, and 9% streptococcal species. 6 required re-operation - 4 with loop drains and 2 with incision and packing with complete healing.
    • 3. Abscesses• University of Indiana, Riley Hospital for Children• One hundred twenty-eight patients were treated over a 14-month period. Age 5 weeks to 18 years. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was identified in 76% of the cultured specimens. Average length of drain use was 9 days (range, 5-29 days). There were no local recurrences of subcutaneous abscesses. There was no morbidity related to the drainage procedures.
    • 4. Abscesses• Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo• 18 patients, 11 under age of 2, MRSA in 55%, drains in place 7.9 days; after 60 days, no incomplete or recurrent abscesses noted
