Summary of "The effects of skin closure by using mattress sutures or intracutaneous absorbable sutures after the Karydakis flap surgery because of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus. A comparative analysis."

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, who had undergone Karydakis flap surgery and the skin closure of whom was made by using intracutaneous or mattress sutures, with respect to wound site complications and recurrence.
