About

Breast abscesses are an unfortunate pathology that develop in patients, and treatment is often painful and unpleasant. The goal of this study is to identify risk factors associated with failure of aspiration as a primary intervention as opposed to incision and drainage in the hopes of adequately treating patients at initial presentation.

Full description

The pendulum has now swung toward minimally invasive aspiration as the primary treatment modality, with multiple studies reporting superior cosmetic results. However, patients in these studies often required repeat breast aspirations, and sometimes ultimately required incision and drainage. Aspiration first for treatment of breast abscess may not be a wise choice for all patients if it results in increased antibiotic days, return to emergency department (ED)/increased cost, or prolonged pain from multiple procedures. Several studies have identified varying risk factors for aspiration failure as primary intervention for breast abscesses. More data is needed to confirm the true risk factors for failure.
