AIM: This study aimed to report our preliminary experience with pediatric endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment (PEPSiT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the reports of 15 patients, 6 girls and 9 boys, with an average age of 16 years (range 13-18) with noninfected pilonidal sinus disease who underwent PEPSiT in our institution over an 18-month period. Four cases were redo-procedures, for recurrence of disease after open excision repair. Surgical outcomes of sinus healing, recurrence of disease, postoperative pain, hospital stay, analgesic requirements, and patient satisfaction levels were evaluated and a comparison analysis with classic open repair was performed...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Chronic pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is relatively common in adolescents and can be treated by various surgical techniques. This study aimed to evaluate the outcome in adolescents surgically treated for PSD in a single clinic. METHODS: PSD patients surgically treated over an 8-year period were retrospectively evaluated. Classical midline incision and excision with primary repair was performed in all. Regular follow up visits were scheduled. Evaluation of postoperative outpatient clinic records as well as telephone interviews for patients who were operated more than 6months ago were done for the long-term results, including coherence to regional hair care...

BACKGROUND: Pilonidal disease (PD) is a chronic situation which may cause pain, discomfort, inflammation, discharges, and inability to do daily routines. Among two main methods of surgery, open healing is preferred by surgeons since it associates with lower risk of recurrence; however, it could complicate the wound condition by delaying the healing process. METHODS: For this meta-analysis, a search in Medline, Embase and Scopus was performed in June 2017 with no restrictions placed on the publication date or languages...

Pilonidal sinus or pilonidal cyst is a common benign disease, affecting mostly young working men. We present the first case of an epidural abscess imitating pilonidal sinus. A 33-year old male, suffering from previously undiagnosed and untreated diabetes mellitus (DM), presented to our emergency department (ER), one month after open surgical treatment of pilonidal sinus, due to weakness and fever. After re-operation of the pilonidal cyst and due to post-operative pus production and continuation of fever a computer tomogr aphy (CT )scan was performed revealing an epidural abscess extending from the thoracic vertebrae 12 (T-12) to the sacrococcygeal area...

BACKGROUND: It has been suggested that removal of body hair in the sacrococcygeal area prevents recurrence after surgery for sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease (SPSD). The aim of this study was to review the literature regarding the effect of hair depilation on the recurrence rate in patients surgically treated for SPSD. METHODS: A systematic search was performed in PubMed, EMBASE, and The Cochrane Library by using synonyms for SPSD. Title, abstract, and full text were screened by two independent reviewers...

The pilonidal sinus (SP) is a common pathology. The treatment is a surgical excision. Many surgeons continue to systematically send this SP in histological analysis. The objective of our retrospective study was to evaluate the interest of this systematic histological analysis. The retrospective analysis of patients undergoing surgery was performed between 1 January 2006 and 31 December 2014. The primary observation was the presence of a malignant disease on the surgical specimen. Secondary observations were the wound healing time and the rate of recurrence...

Local flaps exhibit excellent color matching that no other type of flap can compete with. Moreover, surgery using a local flap is easier and faster than surgery using a distant or free flap. However, local flaps can be much more difficult to design. We designed 2 templates to plan a V-Y rotation advancement flap. The template for a unilateral V-Y rotation advancement flap was used on the face (n=5), anterior tibia (n=1), posterior axilla (n=1), ischium (n=1), and trochanter (n=2). The template for a bilateral flap was used on the sacrum (n=8), arm (n=1), and anterior tibia (n=1)...

BACKGROUND: Pilonidal disease is a common and painful disorder that can be challenging to manage. Recurrent surgical treatment is often warranted and may result in significant morbidity, with reported wound complication rates as high as 30%. Laser hair depilation of the natal cleft may decrease the incidence of recurrence. The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and tolerability of laser hair depilation in adolescents with pilonidal disease. METHODS: We performed a prospective, single arm, pilot trial of laser hair depilation to the natal cleft in 13 patients with pilonidal disease...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Pilonidal sinus is a common problem in the sacrococcygeal region, especially in obese, sedentary young men. The ideal surgical solution is still under debate, and there is a high rate of recurrence. In the present study, we analyzed the long-term results of a video-assisted minimally invasive technique for the treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease: endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment (EPSiT). METHODS: From October 2013 through November 2015, a total of 77 consecutive patients (69 Males and 8 Females, median age: 23 y) were referred to our colorectal units...

PURPOSE: Although there are several surgical methods for treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus, there is no widespread consensus. In this study, we aimed to compare primary closure, Limberg, and modified Limberg flap techniques, with each performed by each of 3 surgeons. METHODS: A total of 802 patients who were operated on for pilonidal sinus disease were included in this retrospective cohort study. Patients were evaluated in 3 groups: group 1 (limited excision + primary closure), group 2 (large excision + Limberg flap technique), and group 3 (large excision + modified Limberg technique)...

BACKGROUND: Pilonidal sinus disease is thought to be caused by intrusion of hair into healthy skin; loose hair in the intergluteal fold is thought to promote disease. However, compelling evidence to support these postulates is lacking; the cause of pilonidal sinus disease remains uncertain. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether particular properties of hair are associated with susceptibility to pilonidal sinus disease, we compared physical properties of hairs of patients with pilonidal sinus disease with hairs from control subjects who were matched for sex, BMI, and age...
