BACKGROUND Open tension-free techniques of hernia repair using synthetic meshes revealed an excellent patient comfort with low recurrence rates. The influence of the resulting fibrosis on testicular perfusion and sexual function is still unclear. METHODS In a prospective observation study testicular volume, perfusion, and sexual function was investigated before plug and patch repair, after 3 months, and every 6 months thereafter. Testicular volume and perfusion was examined by a standardized… CONTINUE READING
