A new minimally invasive treatment of pilonidal sinus disease with the use of a diode laser: a prospective large series of patients


Various surgical techniques are available for the management of pilonidal sinus, but there is still controversy concerning the optimal surgical approach. The aim of our study was to evaluate the safety, efficacy and clinical outcome of a laser procedure for the treatment of pilonidal sinus.


SiLaT proved to be a safe and effective procedure for treating patients suffering from pilonidal sinus. Clinical results showed low morbidity and recurrence rates comparable to the published literature for other modern techniques.
