Pionidal sinus is a common chronic disorder mainly seen in the sacrococcygeal region, especially in young males. Different surgical methods have been described for this disorder. The most commonly used are excision and primary closure and excision with reconstructive flap. However the risk of recurrence or developing an infection of the wound after the operation is high. The patient requires longer hospitalization, and the procedure is expensive. There is a similarity between pilonidal sinus and shalyaja nadivrana descried in susruta samhita. Susruta has advocated a minimally invasive parasurgical treatment, viz., ksharasutra procedure, for naadivrana. Hence this procedure was tried in pilonidal sinus. This treatment not only minimizes complication and recurrence but also enables the patient to resume work quicker and with less discomfort.
