The efficacy of Limberg flap reconstruction for pilonidal sinus with acute abscess remains unclear. This study aimed to compare outcomes after Limberg flap reconstruction for pilonidal sinus disease with and without acute abscess. A secondary objective was to perform a review of the literature on the topic.

To identify surgical techniques applied in case of recurrence in patients with pilonidal sinus, who have undergone primary treatment with Limberg flap, and to present our cases treated with Limberg fl...
The ideal treatment for patients who suffer from pilonidal sinus disease should lead to a cure with a rapid recovery period allowing a return to normal daily activities, with a low level of associated...
Although many surgical methods have been described for sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus treatment, the best option is still controversial. We aimed to compare postoperative outcomes of these different m...
After the pilonidal sinus surgery, the complications such as skin maceration, local wound dehiscence, wound site infection and recurrence may complicate the surgery. We aimed to compare the patients, ...
Minimally invasive surgery for pilonidal sinus disease has gained increasing popularity owing to its advantages of minimal pain and scar, quick healing, and expedited recovery. Injection of fibrin glu...
This study will be a randomized controlled trial in which we will be comparing the effectiveness of Karidakis procedure VS Limberg flap in treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus
Comparison of limited excision-primary closure, Limberg, and modified Limberg flap techniques for the surgical treatment of pilonidal sinus disease, each performed by a separate surgeon, i...
Chronic sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease is a common acquired condition associated with hirsutism that predominantly affects young male patients. Morbidity from this disease results in pai...
Background. Limberg flap, one of the recently being popularized off-midline closure techniques, is widely performed for the treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus; however, recurrence...
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...
A hair-containing cyst or sinus, occurring chiefly in the coccygeal region.
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
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.
