INTRODUCTION: Cryptorchidism is common in children but is rare in the elderly. It often presents with a constellation of signs and symptoms similar to routine inguinal hernias. We present the case of an elderly man with cryptorchidism containing a Leydig cell tumor and provide clinical insights. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An-84-year old man was admitted with an incarcerated right lower quadrant hernia. Both testes were absent on palpation of the scrotum. After reduction of the hernia, computed tomography scan revealed a round lesion in the hernia sac, which was suspected to be the ectopic testis...

Kugel hernia repair is classically carried out through the posterior approach; in this study we investigated the effectiveness and invasiveness of a Modified Kugel (Bard-Davol Inc., RI, USA) hernia repair procedure carried out through an anterior approach. A prospective series covering a 2-year period, including 122 patients (142 hernias) were carried out using the anterior approach. Patient comfort, complications and recurrence were evaluated. A total of 142 inguinal hernias were repaired, median age was 67 years, the mean operation time was 51 +/- 23 min and the average incision was 4...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgical approaches to the repair of inguinal hernias have shown the advantages of placing mesh in the preperitoneal space. Despite those advantages, laparoscopic hernia repairs have been associated with increased cost, longer operating times, and advanced laparoscopic skills. An open preperitoneal approach has the benefit of mesh in the preperitoneal position without the disadvantages of a laparoscopic procedure. METHODS: We present our experience with the use of an open preperitoneal mesh repair (KugelMesh, Bard, Inc...

BACKGROUND: The Kugel hernia patch (Davol, Cranston, RI, USA) for treatment of inguinal hernias is a minimal access technique of inguinal herniorrhaphy, which aims to combine the utility of the open operation with the advantages of the laparoscopic procedures. The aim of the present study is to report an initial experience of a cohort of patients with inguinal hernias undergoing repair using this technique. METHODS: A prospective series of 107 inguinal hernia repairs performed between January 2000 and October 2003 in 96 patients, using the Bard Kugel hernia patch were entered into the study...

BACKGROUND: Whether it is an open anterior, laparoscopic, or open preperitoneal approach, we have no general consensus on the preferred approach to recurrent inguinal hernia repairs. Recent reevaluations of the previously described open preperitoneal approach have shown promising results. We critically evaluate our experience with this procedure in our high-risk patient population and compare the results to other useful techniques. METHODS: We present a retrospective study of 48 consecutive patients with 49 recurrent inguinal hernias...
