We present a prospective single-blind trial of sclerotherapy for hydroceles with tetradecyl sulphate and rolitetracycline as sclerosants. Twenty-seven hydroceles were treated with tetradecyl sulphate and 28 with rolitetracycline. The median follow-up was 13 months. There were no statistically significant differences between the 2 drugs in respect of cure(More)
Sclerotherapy with 3% sodium tetradecyl sulfate and 3.5% rolitetracycline on an outpatient basis was applied to 55 hydroceles. The over-all cure rate was 96% with an average followup of 13 months. Of the patients 64% were cured after only 1 sclerosant instillation. A post-sclerotherapy operation was necessary in 4% of the patients. Pain of a significant(More)
