Background: There is no widespread consensus in treatment techniques of sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease (PD). Among surgical techniques, especially Karydakis procedure (KP) or modified Limberg flap (MLF), are frequently preferred. Causing prolonged follow-up and return to daily activity, postoperative complications are very annoying. We aimed to determine risk factors for possible complications and especially recurrence in the patients undergoing surgical treatment for PD.
