Step by step
Hydrocele sac isolation
Incise the skin of the scrotum over the raphe of scrotum for approximately 3 centimeters. If done correctly, the dartos muscle should be visible.
Scrotal skin vessel hemorrhage
Care must be taken to avoid incising any vessels running through the scrotal skin as much as possible to minimize the risk of hemorrhage. A transverse incision should be considered to carry less risk of injuring the skin vessels than a longitudinal incision.
