= annotation - select to reveal
  1. A unilateral scrotal hernia has been present in this 5 weeks old thoroughbred male foal since birth and it continued to enlarge.
  2. Surgical repair under general anesthesia in dorsal recumbency is to be undertaken. The scrotal and inguinal area is aseptically prepared and draped.
  3. A skin incision is made over the affected side of the scrotum. Other surgeons prefer an inguinal ring based incision.
