US Guided Si.La.D. A new technique for minimally invasive pilonidal disease treatment, using ultrasound guided laser ablation.

Expert Rev Med Devices 2021 Jun 14. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

3rd Department of Surgery, ``AHEPA`` University Hospital, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Medical School of Health Sciences, Thessaloniki,Greece.

Nevertheless the drawbacks of this technique are: a blind technique, if the sinus has some ramifications, or e non-linear development we cannot be sure for their destruction.

Methods: 17: patients (12 men, 5 women) were operated with US guided laser destruction- US guided Si. Read More

Gender-specific prevalence of pilonidal sinus disease over time: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

ANZ J Surg 2021 Jun 7. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Department of Procto-Surgery, St. Marienhospital Vechta, Academic Teaching Hospital of the MHH Hannover, Vechta, Germany.

Background: Gender-specific risk factors have been suggested to promote a fourfold higher incidence of pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) in male as compared to female patients. However, in recent decades there has been an apparent shift towards an increasing prevalence of PSD in women, as body weight and other risk factors influence the disease. We aimed at determining whether PSD prevalence actually changed in men and women over time. Read More

Combination of Side-Swing Flap With Negative-Pressure Wound Therapy Is Superior to Open Excision or Flap Alone in Children With Pilonidal Sinus-But at What Cost?

Front Pediatr 2021 14;9:595684. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

Pilonidal sinus (PS) disease frequently occurs in adolescents and young adults, and in many cases involves wide excision or local flaps as treatment. These treatments are associated with a significant recurrence rate, a long healing time, and thus absence from school or work. The hybrid technique, which is a combination of side-swing plasty with negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) may improve these outcomes. Read More

Sacro-coxxygial hygiene, a key factor in the outcome of pilonidal sinus surgical treatment?

BMC Surg 2021 Apr 17;21(1):197. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Department of Visceral Surgery, Geneva University Hospitals and Medical School, Rue Gabrielle-Perret-Gentil 4, 121, Geneva 14, Switzerland.
