Pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is a common chronic disease in young people, It is often associated with considerable discomfort and morbidity
Complications such as infection, wound dehiscence, and seroma were detected in 2 (3.5 %), 2 (3.5 %), and 3 (5.2 %) patients, respectively.
The mean durations of hospitalization and absence from work were 2.4±3 and 12.6±3 days, respectively.
The mean length of defects after operations was 14.4±1 cm and the mean width was 7.2±1 cm). Follow up period averaged 21.4±1.2 (range, 12 to 72) months.
