Author(s): Dr. Ruchi Gupta and Dr. SB Sharma
Abstract: Background: The present study was conducted to determine the effect of crystallized phenol in sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus cases.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted in the department of general surgery on 18 patients. The nature of disease, number of sinus openings and phenol application was assessed.
Results: out of 24 patients, age group 20-40 years had 4 males and 2 females, age 40-60 years had 5 males and 3 females and group >60 years had 5 males and 5 females. 7 lesions were acute and 17 were chronic. The position of orifice was midline in 13 cases and lateral in 6 cases. The difference was non- significant (P>0.05). Nine patients had 1 application, three had 2, two had 3, four had 4, two had 5, one had 6, two had seven and one had 8 applications. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Author concluded that 7 lesions were acute and 17 were chronic. Crystallized phenol can be effectively used for treatment of pilonidal disease.
