  3. 3. S T A T E M E N T O F T H E P R O B L E M • Pilonidal disease is a potentially debilitating condition. • Cause, optimal treatment, still controversial. • Presentation • Male:Female • Age • Aetiology

  26. 26. L U M B A R A D I P O F A S C I A L T U R N O V E R F L A P • Excision of pilonidal cyst up to lumbosacral fascia • Undermining of the skin in the intermediate subcutaneous tissue • Flap developed in 2 (length) to1(base) ratio • When desired length is obtained, cut up to the lumbar fascia • Flap then elevated of the erector spine muscles and turned over into soft tissue defect • Skin sutured over this
  27. 27. L U M B A R A D I P O F A S C I A L T U R N O V E R F L A P • 10 patients • Mean hospital stay of 4 days • Mean time of work 15 days • Acceptable cosmesis • No recurrence
  28. 28. O K ? L E A V E I T O P E N ? • 18 studies, 12 RCTs open vs closure (10 vs 2) (mid- line/off-midline). • 6 studies mid-line vs off-midline. • rapid healing after closure, same infection rate. • Recurrence was less likely to occur after open healing. • Earlier return to work with closure.
