Abstract :

Introduction: Pilonidal disease is a morbid condition of the young population that could impair quality of life with a high cost for the health care system. No consensus exists on optimal surgical treatment, even if several techniques have been proposed. (Giuseppe et al., 2019) The incidence of pilonidal sinus disease is increasing globally.(Doll et al., 2019) About 100/100,000 inhabitants per year are affected in Germany, with even higher numbers reported for Turkey.(Doll et al., 2015b, Duman et al., 2017)
Methodology: Study Design: Descriptive case series.
Setting: Department of Surgery, DHQ Hospital, Sahiwal.
Duration: The duration of the study was from September 2019 to June 2020.
Sample Size: Sample size of 31 cases
Sampling Technique: Non probability, consecutive sampling.
Data Collection Procedure: 31 patients fulfilling the selection criteria was included in this study from wards of Department of Surgery, DHQ Hospital, Sahiwal. An informed consent was obtained. Demographic profile (name, age, gender, and duration of pilonidal sinus, h/o any surgery, type of anesthesia taken that time) was also obtained. Then patients underwent surgery by a single surgical team under local anesthesia with assistance of researcher. Surgical excision was done as per standard protocol.
Results: The pain frequency and severity recorded following the operation and presented in Table 1. As shown in this
table, frequency of pain in local anesthesia surgery patients was significantly lower in 3h, 6h, 24h, and 48h after surgery (P<0.001). Furthermore, the average of pain score was significantly higher in local anesthesia surgery patients at 3h and 6h after surgery (P<0.001). All patients who underwent local anesthesia surgery patients received Xylocaine injection.
