Answer

Guidelines for the management of complicated intra-abdominal infections have been developed by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and the Surgical Infection Society (SIS). [10, 11]  Contraindications for surgical correction of abdominal abscesses are based on the patient’s comorbidities and on the individual’s ability to tolerate surgery.
