Primary Outcome Measures:
  • recurrence rates [ Time Frame: six months ]
    primary outcome measure of effectivity of pilonidal sinus surgery is recurrence rates.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • postoperative complications, wound healing [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Postoperative complications such as bleeding and infection are important outcome measurements. Wound healing time is the other important one.

excision and primer repair surgical technique will be perform
Procedure: videoendoscopic resection of pilonidal sinus
Resection of pilonidal sinus tissue with videoendoscopic approach.
Other Names:
  • Active Comparator: Control: Group 1
  • Procedure/Surgery: Videoendoscopic: Group-2

Detailed Description:
Lots of surgical techniques are performing on pilonidal sinus disease treatment. Lately large flap techniques are popular but causing anatomical distortions and bad cosmesis. In this new approach the investigators concluded that two 1cm diameter holes are enough to surgical treatment. One hole is for videoendoscopic camera and the other one for grasper to extract piluses and granulation tissues.
