We hypothesized that video-assisted ablation of pilonidal sinus could be an effective, minimally invasive treatment of pilonidal sinus. This new, minimally invasive treatment allows the identification...
Abstract Treatment options of pilonidal sinus, which has high recurrence rates, is still controversial. In this study, we aimed to analyze for possible factors affecting recurrence. Forty-one patients...
The aim of this study was to compare two different treatment methods for pilonidal sinus with respect to complications, recurrence, and patient quality of life.
Abstract This paper evaluates a new technique that can lead to excision of pilonidal sinus with less healing time and low recurrence rate. A prospective randomized double-blind controlled study on 142...
Pilonidal sinus is frequently managed with surgical incision. If the wound is left open to heal by secondary intention, negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is often used to promote healing.
The trial compares excision in the midline at surgery for pilonidal disease versus excision lateral of the midline (Karydakis operation) at surgery for pilonidal disease by randomly alloca...
A pilonidal sinus is a cyst or abscess near or on the natal cleft of the buttocks that often contains hair and skin debris. The condition is common and requires surgery to be cured. Severa...
Recurrence, Complications, Work-off date, Healing time and Patients Willingness in Karydakis Technique for Treatment of Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal Sinus versus Laying-open Technique in Imam...
The investigators think, that the treatment of Sinus pilonidalis with excision and covering of the defect with a Limberg-flap is a very good treatment option. The investigators are introdu...
This study will compare the incidence of post-op infection after sinus surgery using conventional post-op oral antibiotics to the incidence of infection after sinus surgery when a bio-reso...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A hair-containing cyst or sinus, occurring chiefly in the coccygeal region.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CRANIAL SINUSES, large endothelium-lined venous channels situated within the SKULL. Intracranial sinuses, also called cranial venous sinuses, include the superior sagittal, cavernous, lateral, petrous sinuses, and many others. Cranial sinus thrombosis can lead to severe HEADACHE; SEIZURE; and other neurological defects.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
