Fistulectomy vs. Modified Karydakis Procedure for Pilonidal Sinus

2017-09-05 21:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 appropriate surgical technique because of a lack of quality comparative studies.

Description

This is a randomized controlled trial. The study will compare the healing of the surgical wound and the recurrence rate after excision and primary para-median closure versus narrow orifice excision (fistulectomy)

Group A: excision and paramedian closure according to modified Karydakis technique

Group B: removal / fistulectomy by scalpels or trephines of primary and drainage orifices, healing of the wound by secondary intention

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The tendency to perceive an incomplete pattern or object as complete or whole. This includes the Gestalt Law of Closure.

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.
