Scrotum: herniorrhaphy 06

  1. The superficial inguinal ring is sutured.
  2. Subcutaneous and fascial layers can be closed with a simple continuous suture of synthetic absorbable.
  3. The skin is sutured with a pattern of the surgeons choice. Here a simple continuous pattern of monofilament non-absorbable suture is used with the ends left long to ease removal.
  4. A penrose drain may be inserted especially in mature animals.
