Abstract

Pilonidal sinus disease is a complex condition that causes both discomfort and embarassment to suffers. Direct cost through absence from work is high. Controversy still exists regarding the best surgical technique for its treatment in terms of minimizing disease recurrence and patient discomfort. Thus, we conducted this study to evaluate the results of rhomboid excision and Limberg flap reconstruction in the surgical treatment of pilonidal sinus disease. This prospective study included 81 patients who had pilonidal sinus and were treated by the rhomboid excision and Limberg flap. The mean follow-up was 18 months and all patients were satisfied with the procedure. There were lower complication rates, minimal discomfort, patients disharged in 2-3 days and only two recurrences. The Authors recommend the Limberg flap procedure for pilonidal sinus disease. It is effective, with short hospitalization, low recurrence rate and shorter time off work.
