A rare complication of inguinal hernia repair: Total testicular ischemia and necrosis

Abstract

Testicular ischemia and necrosis are quite rare complications following inguinal hernia repair. There is still no consensus on the mechanism of infarction and necrosis in the literature. We present a case with total testicular ischemia and necrosis in the early period following the inguinal hernia repair with prolene mesh, ending up with orchiectomy.
