Abstract
Twenty-five patients undergoing routine incision and drainage of dento-alveolar abscesses were screened for bacteraemia during the procedure. In 13 patients, the abscesses were aspirated with a needle prior to incision and drainage, while needle aspiration was omitted in the remaining 12. A blood sample was taken from all individuals immediately before the surgical procedures and at one-minute intervals for a period of 5 minutes after surgery. Needle aspiration of pus resulted in a significant reduction (P less than 0.05) in the bacteraemic episodes (0 out of 13) during subsequent surgery as compared with incision and drainage, without aspiration (3 out of 12). Bacteraemia appeared to be transient, although in one case it was detected at 5 minutes. It is concluded that bacteraemic episodes occur during incision and drainage of dento-alveolar abscesses and this may be reduced by aspiration of the abscess contents prior to incision and drainage. In addition, the aspirates could serve as excellent microbiological samples, uncontaminated with salivary flora. The need for antibiotic cover in at risk patients, however, needs to be established by further studies.
