Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simplified technique for testicular prosthesis insertion in children is presented. The prosthetic testicle is inserted through an inguinal incision and slid into the scrotum. It is kept in position by closing the scrotal entrance with one suture applied through a small skin incision at the scrotal root. This technique has proved to be safe and reliable with regard to extrusions and migrations of the prostheses, as well as other complications.
