ABSTRACT First used in the surgical suite in children, the loop technique is a simple method for managing abscesses that does not require postprocedural packing. The procedure is safe and effective for children and adults and can be used in a broad range of settings, including EDs, urgent cares, and outpatient clinics.

Robyn Dettmar is an assistant professor in the PA program at Marshall B. Ketchum University in Fullerton, Calif. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
