The follow up was from 1 to 8 months. We did not see any important complication, only one partial skin suture´s dehiscence and another bleeding. Two patients who were under orchidopexy and the testicules did not have a low scrotal position, received hormonal therapy with Corionic gonadothrophin and their teticules achieve a comfortable position after the treatment. No patient had recurrence and the cosmetic skin results was excellent. Conclusion: the pre-scrotal access for surgical correction of the inguino-scrotal disorders is consideraded a low complication´s surgery. It is simple. The medium surgical time is very low.
