Histopathological Examination and Endoscopic Sinusectomy: Is It Possible?

Front Surg 2022 3;9:793858. Epub 2022 Mar 3.

Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, University of Naples "Federico II", Naples, Italy.

Introduction: Although carcinomatous degeneration is a rare occurrence, some authors support the need for a histopathological examination after pilonidal cyst excision. Today, minimally invasive techniques are widely spread for the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease but opposed to standard procedures, these techniques could not allow to perform a histopathological examination because of the absence of a specimen. The aim of this two-institutions study is to evaluate whether histopathological examination of the pilonidal sinus excision material can be successfully performed after an endoscopic ablation of the cyst.

Excision and suture in the midline versus Karydakis flap surgery for pilonidal sinus: randomized clinical trial.

BJS Open 2022 03;6(2)

Department of Surgical and Perioperative Sciences, Surgery, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden.

Background: There are several surgical options for the management of pilonidal disease, including midline and off midline closure, but prospective studies are rare. The study hypothesis was that Karydakis flap surgery would result in shorter wound healing and fewer recurrences than excision of pilonidal sinus and suture in the midline.

Methods: A randomized clinical trial was conducted in two hospitals in Sweden between 2006 and 2015 to compare excision and suture in the midline with Karydakis flap surgery. Read More
