Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Abdominoscrotal hydrocele (ASH) consists of two large sacs, both abdominal and scrotal, connecting with the inguinal channel. The diagnosis is made only by ultrasound scan. Surgical treatment is mandatory since no spontaneous resolution has been reported. A new surgical procedure used successfully to treat 11 patients with ASH is described.
