Background. The aim of the present paper is to compare two different surgical techniques for the treatment of sinus pilonidalis.
Methods. In 21 out of 67 cases, the residual defect, after the sinus excision, was sutured whereas in the remaining 48 cases it was treated according to Dufourmentel's technique.
Results. This latter method showed the best results and the lowest complication rate.
Conclusions. The conclusion is drawn that the excision of sinus pilonidalis followed by a cutaneous flap rotation is the golden standard in the treatment of this disease.
