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 glue and phenol solution has been described as minimally invasive methods for treatment of pilonidal sinus. This report describes the injection of a new sealant, the thrombin gelatin matrix, as a novel approach of treatment of pilonidal sinus disease. The new sealant, in presence of raw bleeding surface, starts the hemostatic cascade that ends by forming an insoluble fibrin clot that will be organized into a fibrous plug, obliterating the sinus cavity and preventing recurrence of pilonidal sinus disease.

Assessment of surgiflo injection for treating pilonidal sinus disease
Patients with pilonidal sinus disease will be randomised to two groups (crystallised phenol and platelet rich plasma). Sinus healing time, patient satisfaction, complications and recurrenc...
Evaluating clinical performance of Hemostatic Matrix with bovine thrombin in achieving hemostasis in patients undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery.
A hair-containing cyst or sinus, occurring chiefly in the coccygeal region.
An endopeptidase that is structurally similar to MATRIX METALLOPROTEINASE 2. It degrades GELATIN types I and V; COLLAGEN TYPE IV; and COLLAGEN TYPE V.
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.
Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
