Pilonidal Sinus Treatment -
Pilonidal sinus seldom heal with medicinal treatment, any medication whether allopathic. ayurvedic or homeopathic may show some temporary relief but do not eradicate the problem. In most of the patients having pilonidal sinus, surgeons usually recommend surgical procedures like Z-plasty etc. Even after surgery the chances of recurrences are always there. Post operative pain, hospitalization and chances of recurrence are the factors which suggest that surgery is not the appropriate method of treating pilonidal sinus.
TREATMENT OF CHOICE(AYURVEDA) -
In ayurveda , a parasurgical treatment known as Ksharsutra therapy is an effective treatment for pilonidal sinus.
Treatment method includes proper identification of sinus tract wrt. to its depth, direction and branching pattern. This could be achieved via sinogram or skilled probing. Once the sinus tract has been properly identified, a super specialized medicated thread i.e. Graded ksharasutra™is placed in the sinus tract. The medicine from the medicated thread is gradually released in the sinus tract which leads to debridement of the sinus tract which means unhealthy tissue, pus, hairs are expelled out from the sinus tract. The proper and complete debridement of the tract induces healing of the sinus which subsequently closes. The medicine coated thread remains effective for 1-2 weeks after which it has to be replaced by a new thread. Usually, in a sinus which is approx. 5 cm long, 8-10 sittings of medicated thread replacement are required at a weekly interval. Ksharsutra therapy being a non surgical opd procedure doesn't involve any hospitalization or bed rest and patients can resume their routine work immediately after treatment. Results of ksharsutra therapy are far better than surgery since chances of recurrence are not commonly seen . The facility of Graded kshara sutrais available only at Sushruta ano rectal institute.
