Management of Spermatic Cord Lipomas
5 months ago
Video case surgery: A spermatic cord lipoma is found in 20–70% of all inguinal hernia repairs. The clinical picture of an inguinal hernia with bulging and pain but without an actual indirect hernia sac may become manifest in up to 8% of these cases. Missed spermatic cord lipoma can result in recurrence or pseudo-recurrence. The surgeon should always consider removing cord lipomas when they are encountered perioperatively.
