A frequent condition of the natal cleft is the pilonidal sinus, can cause consequences of various issues including infection and development of an abscess. The purpose of this review paper is to investigate if endoscopic pilonidal sinus therapy in conjunction with application of crystalized phenol can prevent recurrence. There are several operative management alternatives, however the best method is still up for debate. There is currently no single treatment available for pilonidal diseases, which heals quickly and rarely returns. There is currently no one treatment for pilonidal illness that is quick to heal, produces pleasing aesthetic effects, and has a low recurrence rate. For the first time, this cohort combined the pilonidal illness treatments of phenol crystal application and diathermy ablation using an endoscope.
The use of endoscopic pilonidal sinus surgery in conjunction with crystalized phenol for the treatment of pilonidal disease: Its safety, efficacy, and short- and long-term results. Phenolization appears to have advantages over local sinus excision due to the fact that it is carried out under local anesthesia with a relatively short surgical procedure, less postoperative discomfort, a low risk of surgical site infection (8.7%), and a short recovery period (mean of 2.3 days) from normal activity.
