AbstractBackground:An infection of the natal cleft and sacrococcygeal area that affects mostly teenagers and young adults. The biggest disadvantage is wound healing. The lack of a superior surgical procedure is due to the numerous proposed surgical techniques. The study will describe the modified Bascom procedure and its effects in individuals with pilonidal illness. Objectives:The purpose of this study is to evaluate the modified Bascom procedure and its results in patients with pilonidal disease.
Materials and Methods: From October 2020 to May 2021, patients presenting to JSS Hospital, Mysuru with pilonidal sinus were studied prospectively. Patient selection is based on a thorough history, physical examination, and basic pre-operative examinations. Thirty cases receive modified Bascom. The patient's rate of cure, postoperative complications, and recurrence are observed.
Results: In this study of 20 patients, there was a 9:1 male preponderance. 20.46 + 9.42yrs mean age of presentation Pilonidal sinus is widespread in persons who sit for long periods of time as drivers, students, etc. Acute pilonidal sinus to chronic discharge sinus. These patients' hospital stay, healing time, wound infection, wound dehiscence, and recurrence were evaluated, and the results were favourable. Our patients had wound infection and dehiscence, although the rate of recurrence and complications, hospital stay (4.42 + 1.24 days), and wound healing time (19.6 + 1.22 days) was low compared to previous operations.
Conclusion: Study demonstrates pilonidal illness affects guys in their 30s and 40s. Occupation and local anatomical factors play a role in illness development. Pilonidal disease is diagnosed clinically. There are several options for treating pilonidal disease. The primary closure is the most effective, with low recurrence rates, less problems, and faster healing
