Spermatic Cord Hydrocele


Presentation

  • Urogenital sparganosis usually presents as a palpable subcutaneous nodule in the groin, labia, or scrotum. It can also present as a tumor in the epididymis and testis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Whether age and the hydrocele presented as reducible was similar among the 3 varieties (P .099 and 0.232, respectively).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Updated content presents the latest coding information so you can practice with the most current information available.[books.google.com]
  • Unless there is an infection present, medical therapy or the use of antibiotics is not necessary. The child must be observed, however, for increasing pain, discomfort, nausea or vomiting, which may indicate the presence of an inguinal hernia.[healthguideinfo.com]
  • Abstract Five cases of hydrocele of the spermatic cord are presented.[link.springer.com]
Splenomegaly
  • There was neither hepatomegaly nor splenomegaly. In other words, physical examination was negative except for hydrocele. Now he is well 3 and half years after.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
Inguinal Mass
  • All children, except one, were referred for US because of suspected inguinal hernia, hydrocele or inguinal mass. In one child, the US examination was performed to confirm the diagnosis of a spermatic cord hydrocele.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • All five patients had a firm inguinal mass, and ultrasonography, performed to exclude adenopathy, incarcerated hernia, and paratesticular tumor, showed an avascular cystic mass superior to and separate from the testicle.[link.springer.com]
  • Ultrasound examination of the inguinal mass was performed (Figure 1-3).[appliedradiology.com]
  • The encysted type can be confused with an inguinal mass (lymphadenopathy, hernias), and also primary tumors of the cord. 30 Congenital hydrocele occurs when a patent processus vaginalis within the spermatic cord communicates with the peritoneal cavity[abdominalkey.com]

  • They are otherwise asymptomatic, other than size and weight, causing inconvenience. However the long continued presence of large hydroceles causes atrophy of testis due to compression or by obstructing blood supply.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • The epididymis is a reservoir for N. gonorrhoeae, and although infection may be asymptomatic, microabscesses and edema are common, usually with out extensive necrosis.[abdominalkey.com]
Surgical Procedure
  • Clinical and ultrasound (US) findings and surgical procedures of 27 children with spermatic cord hydrocele were reviewed. All children, except one, were referred for US because of suspected inguinal hernia, hydrocele or inguinal mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Aspiration
  • Aspiration cytology revealed various kinds of erythroblasts and myeloblasts, and megakaryocytes. Namely, orthochromatic polychromatic and basophilic erythroblasts, and metamyelocytes and myelocytes etc. were observed in the aspirated fluid.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • A hydrocele may need to be aspirated or surgically repaired if it causes discomfort or poses a risk for reduced blood circulation to the testicles.[healthguideinfo.com]
  • Jaboulay’s procedure [5] After aspiration of a primary hydrocele, fluid reaccumulates over the following months and periodic aspiration or operation is needed.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Hydroceles can be treated with aspiration or surgery. To aspirate the collected fluid, the doctor inserts a needle into the scrotum and directs it toward the hydrocele. Suction is applied to remove (aspirate) as much fluid as possible.[encyclopedia.com]
Nausea
  • The child must be observed, however, for increasing pain, discomfort, nausea or vomiting, which may indicate the presence of an inguinal hernia. Surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis. The child is given general anesthesia.[healthguideinfo.com]
  • The symptoms of epididymitis may include pain (from mild to severe), swelling of the testicles or scrotum, nausea and vomiting, and fever. Hydrocele Hydrocele is a buildup of fluid around the testicles.[beaumont.org]

Scrotal Mass
  • The most common cystic scrotal mass in a child is a hydrocele or inguinal hernia. Hydroceles can also be seen along the inguinal canal. Rarely, an ultrasound is needed to confirm a loculated cystic mass on the spermatic cord.[meddean.luc.edu]
  • Communicating hydroceles frequently present with a history of a scrotal mass that changes in size; the scrotal size increases during crying, defecation and decreases after periods of inactivity, e.g. sleeping.[pedclerk.uchicago.edu]
  • Some men may have pain or discomfort from the increased size of the scrotal mass. Hydroceles are usually congenital, found in a large percentage (80% or more) of male children and in 1% of adult males over 40.[surgeryencyclopedia.com]

Prognosis

  • Avascular on color Doppler interrogation Treatment and prognosis Elective surgery may be useful in preventing development of an acquired indirect hernia 3 .[radiopaedia.org]
  • Prognosis The prognosis is dependent on the presence of any underlying cause. Most congenital hydroceles resolve by the end of the first year of life.[patient.info]
  • Outcome and Prognosis  Inguinal repairs of communicating hydroceles are exceedingly successful, with a less than 1% recurrence rate.[slideshare.net]

Etiology

  • Etiology of Hydroceles Congenital Hydroceles With the descent of the testis, the parietal peritoneum forms the processus vaginalis and the cavity of the tunica vaginalis of the testis.[urology-textbook.com]
  • Etiology of Hydroceles  Congenital Hydroceles With the descent of the testis, the parietal peritoneum forms the processus vaginalis and the cavity of the tunica vaginalis of the testis.[slideshare.net]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiology Clinically apparent scrotal hydroceles are evident in 6% of term males beyond the newborn period. Most paediatric hydroceles are congenital but rarer causes include malignancy and infection.[patient.info]
  • Epidemiology  Patent processus vaginalis are found in 80-90% of term male infants at birth.  This frequency rate steadily decreases until age 2 years, when it appears to plateau at approximately 25-40%.[slideshare.net]
Sex distribution
Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology  The pathophysiology of hydroceles requires an imbalance of scrotal fluid production and absorption.[slideshare.net]

Prevention

  • Avascular on color Doppler interrogation Treatment and prognosis Elective surgery may be useful in preventing development of an acquired indirect hernia 3 .[radiopaedia.org]
  • The abdominal wall is then repaired to prevent further leakage of fluids into the scrotal area. After the child recovers from anesthesia, he may be sent home.[healthguideinfo.com]
  • CONCLUSIONS: Because the processus vaginalis remained patent in mixed variety, herniotomy is required to prevent later occurrence of an inguinal hernia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Purpose A hydrocelectomy is performed to correct a hydrocele and prevent its recurrence. Demographics Hydroceles are found in male children or adult males (usually over 40).[surgeryencyclopedia.com]
