This study wants to improve patient care affected by pilonidal sinus during and after surgery. Pilonidal sinus excision is a frequent procedure, despite this, there is still not an appropr...
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...
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...
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...
Pilonidal Disease is disease of young patients with significant morbidity and is difficult to treat. Currently multiple methods are practiced for the treatment of the disease, two of them ...
The article by Pappas et al highlighted the results of the laser treatment of Pilonidal disease (PND). Although this treatment seems impressive t there are a few points which merit discussion. The...
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...
The aim of this study was to compare the filling of the pilonidal sinus tract with fibrin sealant (FS) against tract excision and primary closure (PC) as the primary procedure. Details of all patients...
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...
In the past decades, numerous surgical techniques and conservative treatments for pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) had been discussed and published. There is still no consensus yet of the best techniques...
A hair-containing cyst or sinus, occurring chiefly in the coccygeal region.
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 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.
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.
The omission of atrial activation that is caused by transient cessation of impulse generation at the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a prolonged pause without P wave in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. Sinus arrest has been associated with sleep apnea (REM SLEEP-RELATED SINUS ARREST).
