Materials and Methods: In this technique, semilunar incisions, at the opposite ends of the defect facing away from each other are made. Undermining flaps in the subcutaneous tissues is then made, for about 2 cm to facilitate tension-free closure. Results: A total of 42 males were closed by this technique, all under local anesthesia. The in-hospital stay was for 2 days in all patients. One patient (2.1%) developed hematoma and one patient (2.1%) had wound break down which was managed conservatively by secondary intention. Recurrence was seen in 4 (8.3%) patients. Conclusions: Our Lazy-S closure technique is a useful technique for the treatment of pilonidal sinus with favorable.
