Abstract

Abstract Nine hundred fifty cases of moderate to large hydrocele were surgically treated by excising the skin, dartos, spermatic fascia, sac, and the median septum, leaving sufficient scrotal skin to construct a new scrotum—just enough to accommodate both the testes. The cure was complete, and the postoperative complications were minimal. The redundant skin and subcutaneous tissues were removed because they would otherwise hang and flop against the inner aspect of the patient's thighs, resulting in great difficulty and dissatisfaction in walking. This method of skin excision can also be applied to a huge inguinoscrotal hernia after its repair.
