Dr. Swapna Saha | Dr. Kundan Gedam

However it has been noticed that if these methods fail, open surgical drainage becomes necessary. But lately laparoscopic drainage of liver abscess has become useful in many patients. Nowadays surgeons have started focusing in minimal access surgery which can benefit in management of liver abscess and recovery of patients in whom other treatment modalities fail.

Keywords: Liver abscess, laparoscopy, drainage, antibiotic
