What is Pilonidal Sinus?

A pilonidal sinus, also known as pilonidal cyst, is a cyst or abscess that forms in the cleft at the top of the buttocks. The word "pilonidal" means "nest of hair," and these cysts often contain hair and other debris. The condition is more common in men than in women and typically occurs in young adults.

The exact cause of pilonidal sinuses is not clear, but it is believed to be associated with the penetration of loose hairs into the skin, causing inflammation and infection. Other contributing factors may include friction, prolonged sitting, and a deep natal cleft.

Treatment for a pilonidal sinus depends on the severity of the condition. Mild cases may respond to conservative measures such as warm compresses and keeping the area clean. However, more severe cases may require medical intervention, which can include:

The diagnostic process initiates with a meticulous review of the patient's medical history. During this phase, patients are queried about symptoms indicative of pilonidal sinus, such as persistent pain in the affected region, drainage of pus, and discomfort, especially during certain activities. Additionally, our healthcare providers inquire about any history of infections, previous occurrences of pilonidal sinus, or relevant skin conditions.

Fissurectomy is a surgical procedure designed to address chronic anal fissures, which are painful tears or cracks in the lining of the anal canal.
During a fissurectomy, a surgeon removes fibrous or scar tissue around the fissure, aiming to facilitate healing and alleviate discomfort. The procedure may involve local, regional, or general anesthesia, depending on the patient and surgeon's preference. Recovery is generally quicker compared to other surgical options, with postoperative care focusing on promoting healing through measures such as good hygiene, stool softeners, and a high-fiber diet to prevent constipation.
Individualized recommendations from healthcare professionals guide the decision-making process for this procedure.

Pilonidal Sinus Surgery in Bangalore

Your surgeon will provide specific instructions regarding any medications you should continue or stop before undergoing pilonidal sinus surgery.

During the procedure, the surgeon assesses the internal opening of the sinus and may perform additional techniques, such as a sinus excision (removal of the sinus) or other procedures tailored to the specific characteristics of the pilonidal sinus. The goal is to promote healing and alleviate symptoms.

After addressing the pilonidal sinus, the wound is intentionally left open to heal gradually. In some cases, the surgeon may pack the wound with gauze to aid in the healing process. This open approach allows for proper drainage and reduces the risk of complications.
