The author came to a conclusion: drainage therapy with MEBO yarn strips was safe with few pains, short treatment course, low expense and high cure rate. 

Zhao BS etc. [23] treated 78 cases of perianal abscess with MEBO yarn strip drainage, and more than 90% of the patients were healed after 2-5 times of dressing change and drainage. He thought this method had following advantages:
