Abstract
Background: To retrospectively evaluate the scrotal cosmetic satisfaction related to cosmetic results of two different hydrocelectomy incision scars.
Subjects and Methods: A total of 45 patients underwent the Winkelman hydrocelectomy procedure (WHP) with groups based on the use of two different incisions, the scrotal median raphe incision (SMRI) (n=24) and the transverse scrotal incision (STI) (n=21). At the sixth-month follow-up, the scrotal cosmetic satisfaction was evaluated with Numerical Ratio Score (NRS) and the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS) was applied.
Results: The scrotal cosmetic satisfaction ratios for observer and patient in the SMRI and STI groups were 100% and 81%, respectively (p<0.05). The scrotal cosmetic satisfaction scores for observer and patient scores were greater in the SMRI group than in the STI group (p<0.01). The mean incision scar length of groups were 3.62±0.42 cm for SMRI and 3.64±0.38 cm for STI (p<0.05). The observer scores (p<0.01), patient scores (p<0.01) and total scores (p<0.01) obtained from the POSAS scale were significantly lower in the SMRI group.
Conclusions: The SMRI and STI groups had high scrotal cosmetic satisfaction with short incision scars. The incision scar of the SMRI group had superior cosmetic outcome and satisfaction compared to the STI group. So SMRI group had superior scrotal cosmetic satisfaction compared to the STI group.

Key words: Scrotal cosmetic satisfaction, Hydrocelectomy incision scars, Cosmetic result, SMRI, STI
