Case description

A Limberg flap operation is a procedure for extensive or recurrent pilonidal disease. In the operation, a diamond-shaped incision is made to remove the affected skin and underlying tissue. Another incision is made in the skin to free up tissue from the buttock next to it. The flap is rotated to fill the defect and suture it.
