A total of 172 opеrated patients with pilonidal sinus in sacrococcygeal region were analyzed. Fibrinogenic paste was used in 86 patients, while in the other 86 patients redivac drain was used. Both groups were divided into two subgroups, one in which postoperative antibiotic was administered and in the other-was not. The appearance of early postoperative complications was analyzed in all four groups giving the following results: No complication was found in the group with fibrinogenic paste and administered antibiotic, while in the group with fibrinogenic paste but without antibiotic 3% of the complications were found. There were 10.34% postoperative complications in the group with redivac drain and antibiotic, and 11.11% of the postoperative complications with redivac drain and no antibiotic were found. Conclusion: Application of two-component fibrinogenic paste from autologous plasma significantly reduces the early postoperative complications. Postoperative usage of antibiotics in patients with redivac drain has not a significant role, while in patients with fibrinogenic paste, it decreases significantly the postoperative complications.
