Laparoscopic hernia: I perform both open and laparoscopic hernias, but would have it done laparoscopically if I had a hernia. The lap hernia has a smaller scar, less pain, quicker recovery time, allows you to look at the opposite side for a hernia (and repair it if found) and the same recurrence rate as open inguinal hernia repairs. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Microsurgical inguinal varicocelectomy (grade III). Large, left, hangs below testicle. What is the prognosis for complete reabsorption?
Good Prognosis.: While the traditional varicocoelectomy operation has a recurrence rate of as much as 25%, the microsurgical technique has a recurrence rate of only 1% or less. ...Read more
No pain: Torsion is treated by untwisting the twisted cord & fixing the testis so twisting cannot recur. The opposite side(that is not torsed)is also fixed because there is a higher chance it may happen there. If the torsed testicle is gangrenous because of not seeking medical care in time then it is removed. Healing is when the pain is gone. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not really: Testicular cancer risk could increase in case of undescended testicle that could be associated with hernia repairing the hernia and bringing the testicle down right around birth could decrease that chance but in later ages most likely testicle has to go while repairing the hernia because the risk is too much now regular hernia repair has no effect on testicular cancer. ...Read more

Fortunately low: Usual surgical risks of bleeding, postoperative hematoma & infection with obese boys at greater risk. Sometimes difficult to place undescended testis low or at base of scrotum. Occasionally testis may atrophy due to impaired blood supply. There is potential risk of "secondary ascent" especially if mothers carry child on their hip after surgery or older boys pressing video game control between legs. Fortunately rate of complications is low. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Us on testes. What is a focus of increased echogenicity in the right epididymal head presumably on the basic of remote epididymal appendage torsion?
Almost never: Used to be common for some urologists to tie of the vasa deferentia (plural) after open prostate surgery, which was associated with about 2% incidence of epididymitis & when fewer different antibiotics were in existence. Turp is associated with lower incidence of postoperative infection & catheters remain inplace for shorter time compared to open surgery. Thus no need for vasectomy with turp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

One school of thought believes that the testis does not descend because it is malformed or maldeveloped and that includes size, ductal connections and length of the spermatic cord. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
