Injection of freshly collected autologous adipose tissue into non-healing wounds after closed incision pilonidal surgery.

Tech Coloproctol 2020 Jul 9. Epub 2020 Jul 9.

Department of Surgery, Randers Regional Hospital, Skovlyvej 15, 8930, Randers NØ, Denmark.

Background: Chronic non-healing wounds are a major problem after closed incision pilonidal surgery. Freshly collected autologous adipose tissue injected into perianal fistulas in patients with Crohn's disease seems to promote healing. We investigated this technique in patients with non-healing wounds after cleft-lift surgery for pilonidal sinus disease (PSD). Read More

Postauricular Masses.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Jun 24. Epub 2020 Jun 24.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Gulhane Medical School, Ankara, Turkey.

Objective: The postauricular region (PR) is an anatomic area that has been neglected until now, due to the fact that the significant cosmetic changes and features of this region are often overlooked. There are limited and inconsistent data about postauricular masses in the literature and the definition of the PR and its borders remain unclear. The aim of the present study was to define the PR and evaluate benign and malignant masses that may arise in the PR. Read More

Phenolisation of the Sinus Tract in Recurrent Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal Sinus Disease: A Prospective Cohort Study.

Cureus 2020 May 15;12(5):e8129. Epub 2020 May 15.

Surgery, University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, NLD.

Purpose Phenolisation is a minimally invasive treatment option in patients with primary pilonidal disease. However, most studies focus on patients with primary pilonidal sinus disease, while data of patients with recurrent pilonidal disease are very scarce. The purpose of this study was to evaluate phenolisation of the sinus tract in patients with recurrent pilonidal sinus disease after previous surgery for SPSD. Read More

Sexual Function in Patients Suffering from Sacrococcygeal Pilonidal Sinus Disease.

Cureus 2020 Mar 2;12(3):e7159. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Surgery, The University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, NLD.

Introduction Sexual function is one of the aspects upon which quality of life (QoL) is based. Although previous studies have evaluated the influence of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease (SPSD) on QoL, no data are available on the influence of SPSD on sexual function in a highly active sexual population based on the age range. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate whether SPSD has a negative impact on sexual function and whether this is influenced by the surgical treatment of SPSD. Read More

The body's integrated repair kit: Studying mesenchymal stem cells for better ligament repair.

Biomed J 2019 12;42(6):365-370

University of Copenhagen, BRIC Biotech Research & Innovation Centre, Anders Lund Group, Copenhagen, Denmark. Electronic address:

In this issue of the Biomedical Journal, we learn that the sport injury-prone knee ligaments might harbour their own repair kit in the form of mesenchymal stem cells, and that TERT transformation helps to keep these cells longer in culture for more extensive studies. In addition, we get a demonstration that diffusion tensor imaging can reliably show the activity of specific neural circuits, that rheumatoid arthritis patients are more prone to insulin resistance, and that platelet-enriched plasma gels significantly improve wound healing after pilonidal sinus surgery. Furthermore, two procreation-related articles inform us that growth hormone treatment improves endometrial receptivity in older women, and that elevated maternal liver enzymes do not impact on the outcome of laser therapy for twin-twin transfusion syndrome.

Background: Pilonidal sinus disease is a common surgical disorder for which a clearly superior corrective operation remains elusive. Recurrence after surgery requiring re-operation is a frequent outcome. This retrospective study examines healing rates, recurrence rates and time to healing of a minimalist approach - employing deroofing of tracks, curettage and minimal skin excision - at one centre over the last decade.

Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, Federico II University of Naples, Via Sergio Pansini, 5, 80131, Naples, Italy.

Background: In the new era of minimally invasive surgery, recent studies encouraged the adoption of endoscopic approaches as the most effective way to treat (pilonidal sinus disease) PSD but little is known about long-term results of minimally invasive procedures.

Materials And Methods: A total of 145 patients with chronic non recurrent pilonidal sinus were enrolled for this randomized controlled trial. The follow-up rate was 97% at 5 years for a total of 74 patients assigned to the minimally invasive treatment group and 67 patients assigned to the conventional Bascom cleft lift treatment group.
