Introduction: Pilonidal sinus is a disease affecting individuals at young age. Numerous surgical methods have been described in the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease. Currently, there is no treatment method providing a rapid recovery with low recurrence risk.
Aim: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the results of our patients who underwent Karydakis surgery.
Material and methods: Results of 112 patients operated on between 2012 and 2019 were retrospectively evaluated. Only the patients who underwent Karydakis surgery were included in the study.
Results: Of all patients, 20 were female and 92 were male. The mean age was 21 years in the female and 20.8 years in the male patients. The mean BMI was 29.6 kg/m2 . The patients were followed up for a mean of 28 months. Postoperative length of stay in hospital was 2.1 days. The complications included wound dehiscence in 10.2%, infection in 3.6%, and bleeding (hematome) in 7.1%. Four patients developed recurrence during follow-up.
Conclusions: Karydakis surgery is a preferable surgical technique with low rates of complications and recurrence.
