Sujithra Ram Manohar, Anita Mahapatra, Srinivasan A, Ramesh Bhat P.

Abstract
The primary objective of this retrospective study was to analyze the outcomes of parasurgical intervention in ten cases of pilonidal sinus, in The Ano Rectal Clinic, AVT Institute of Advanced Research, Coimbatore over a span of five years from October 2005 to January 2010. Ten patients were subjected to parasurgical interventions out of which nine were administered ksharasutra - medicated caustic alkaline thread and one ksharavarti - medicated caustic alkali wick. A minimum of 42 days and a maximum of 133 days were required for the complete healing of the track when ksharasutra was applied. It was found that patients who had undergone incision and drainage prior to Ayurvedic intervention required more time for healing. Advanced age was also found to prolong the duration of healing. The application of ksharavarti in one patient took 14 days to heal completely.

Key words: Ksharasutra, kshara varti, pilonidal sinus
