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...
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 use of plasma rich in growth factors in wound excision pilonidal sinus could improve the healing process of the wound, when compared with the usual technique of daily local healing. Th...
Sacrococcygeal local anesthesia was shown to reduce the time spent in the operating room as well as in the recovery room. In addition, decreased hospital stay and postoperative analgesic c...
Assessment of surgiflo injection for treating pilonidal sinus disease
This study aimed to report our preliminary experience with pediatric endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment (PEPSiT).
The purpose of this study was to assess whether adolescent patients who heal their pilonidal sinus disease with the Bascom cleft lift have a sustained result, or if younger age puts them at increased ...
The video-assisted subcutaneous destruction of the sinus tract (VADST) is a novel, minimally-invasive technique for the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease (PSD). This is an advancement of the previo...
Pilonidal disease, and the treatment associated with it, can cause significant morbidity and substantial burden to patients' quality of life. Despite the plethora of surgical techniques that have been...
Recurrent pilonidal disease has been reported to occur in up to 30% of patients after their initial infection. Surgical resection is often performed to prevent recurrence of disease, however, morbidit...
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).
