Chronic pilonidal disease is a common problem with no ideal treatment. This is a prospective study that will evaluate the results of surgical pore excision, curettage, and injection of a regenerative tissue matrix, Cymetra, on patients with chronic pilonidal disease.

Condition Intervention
Pilonidal Sinus Procedure: surgery (Pore Excision, Curettage, and Injection of Cymetra)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Pore Excision, Curettage, and Injection of a Tissue Scaffold as Treatment for Pilonidal Disease

Further study details as provided by Matino, James, M.D.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • wound failure, time lost from work or school, analgesic requirements, recurrence rates [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • infection rates, wound care requirements [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2008
Detailed Description:
In addition, the study will evaluate the credibility and reproducibility of results within other surgeons trained to perform the procedure. Data collection will focus on post-operative wound failure, infection ratwes, analgesic requirements, time lost from work or school, wound care requirements, and 6 month recurrence rates. These outcomes will be compared to outcomes using conventional pilonidal surgical intervention using published data.

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:
