Abstract

Pilonidal sinus treatment has long been problematic since the optimal management is not established. Flap techniques applied after excision of the disease also do not solve the problem. The main reason for the failure is wound breakdown before complete healing after flap coverage of the defect. When recurrence develops, it becomes more difficult to treat the disease. In this case, marsupialization seems to be a good solution as a method that can be applied quite easily. This article reports the results of the marsupialization technique for the management of failed wound coverage?s.
