What is Pilonidal sinus?

Pilonidal sinus is a painful condition that affects the skin and tissue of the buttocks. It is most common in young adults, particularly those with deep creases in their skin. The condition is caused when hair follicles become blocked, leading to an accumulation of pus and bacteria. It often starts as a small cyst or bump, which can become painful and infected over time.

Treatment of Pilonidal sinus

The treatment of Pilonidal sinus is a complex process that involves surgical removal of the cyst and the underlying sinus. The goal of treatment is to reduce the amount of infection and achieve a lasting cure. Sometimes, the primary procedure is not enough and further interventions may be necessary. Depending on the exact cause, the doctor may need to use medications to help reduce the swelling and promote healing.

Dormant Pilonidal sinuses do not need to be treated since they are not infected. Certain precautions should be taken during this silent phase to reduce the risk of infection and thus, the need for surgery.

It is important to take the following precautions:

  • Ensure that the area is as clean and dry as possible.
  • Stay away from long periods of sitting or driving.
  • Use a razor or hair removal cream to remove hair from the area. It might be a good idea to see a dermatologist (a skin specialist) and consider laser hair removal for permanent hair removal.

An infected Pilonidal sinus will cause pain and discharge, which may require surgery.

Other Surgical management

Type of surgical method Method of surgery and Advantages Disadvantages
  • The skin covering the sinus tract is excised locally and widely by the surgeon during this treatment.
  • With a 10-15% recurrence rate, the surgery is secure.
  • Wound cover takes three months to heal. It is a laborious job to change the dressing every day.
Laser Pilonidoplasty (Lpp)
  • The patient is released after 24 hours and can resume regular employment after 5 days.
  • Recovery is substantially quicker than with a typical
  • Wide excision since wound healing takes roughly 6 to 8 weeks.
  • The rate of recurrence is very low.
  • Fever and chills
Excision With Primary Closure
  • The benefit of this method is that mending occurs more quickly, in 4-6 weeks
  • The infection rate is around 20–25%.
  • Revision surgery is carried out in the event of such an infection, and the site is still left for open recovery.
  • When doing a Z-plasty, the surgeon first removes the abscess and sinus before loosening triangle flaps on either side of the midline to fill the cavity, with flap points pointing in the direction of the head and foot.
  • It isn't a preferred method of surgery as the chances of recurring are fast.
Limberg flap/Gluteal flap
  • Patients who have severe Pilonidal illness or disease that affects both buttocks undergo this treatment.
  • In order to create a cavity, the surgeon removes an oval-shaped plug that contains the abscess, skin, and fat.
  • A flap of skin and dense fat from the pelvis beneath and next to the hollow is activated to fill the cavity. The corners of the flap are stitched once it is swung into the middle.
  • The flap surgeries are rather intrusive, and patients must stay in the hospital for a few days following.
  • Additionally, the recuperation period following surgery is lengthy.
  • These operations remove a lot of tissue, which weakens the area and gives the patient few other options if they don't work
