Sacrococcigeal pilonidalis disease (SPD) recurrence is a major factor influencing surgical outcomes. Several different surgical treatments have been reported, however, there is a lack of long-term data on reoperation.

Analytic longitudinal assessment of 83 patients (median age 35 years, range 23–59 years) with recurrent SPD that completed the 5-year study design following D-shape reoperation. Among a cohort of 607 patients, we enrolled 83 recurrent SPD. After D-shape reoperation, second recurrence rate was 9.6% (8/83). Second recurrence rate was not statistically significantly different among patients undergone D-shape as first surgery compared to patients of symmetric excision group (11.8% vs. 7.4%, p = 0.57). Similarly, there was no statistical difference among patients who underwent D-shape as first surgery compared to patients who underwent symmetric excision elsewhere (11.8% vs. 9.1%, p =.75). D-shape is a safe and effective when adopted as revisional surgery at a long-term follow-up. Comparative evaluation is warranted to establish the potential superiority over different surgical surgery in case of recurrence.

Abstract

Sacrococcigeal pilonidalis disease (SPD) recurrence is a major factor influencing surgical outcomes. Several different surgical treatments have been reported, however, there is a lack of long-term data on reoperation. Aim of this study was to analyze outcomes of a single center adopting a standardized off-midline asymmetric procedure (D-shape). Analytic longitudinal assessment of 83 patients (median age 35 years, range 23–59 years) with recurrent SPD that completed the 5-year study design following D-shape reoperation. Among a cohort of 607 patients, we enrolled 83 recurrent SPD. After D-shape reoperation, second recurrence rate was 9.6% (8/83). Second recurrence rate was not statistically significantly different among patients undergone D-shape as first surgery compared to patients of symmetric excision group (11.8% vs. 7.4%, p = 0.57). Similarly, there was no statistical difference among patients who underwent D-shape as first surgery compared to patients who underwent symmetric excision elsewhere (11.8% vs. 9.1%, p =.75). D-shape is a safe and effective when adopted as revisional surgery at a long-term follow-up. Comparative evaluation is warranted to establish the potential superiority over different surgical surgery in case of recurrence.
