Combined Anomalies 1 (Cryptorchidism)

Operative findings in a 6-year-old boy with left cryptorchidism. In contrast to the rather short vessels of the spermatic cord, the vas deferens on the right side at the top in the picture is three times as long. During surgery possible combined anomalies must be considered which may be important for the surgical technique and for the prognosis. In the case report unawareness of such a malformation (the so-called long loop vas cryptorchidism) conceals the danger of injury to the vas deferens by the surgeon; compare also C in $$hode_4??££figure for comparison.§§
