Prosthetic Testes

A saline-filled artificial testis which is surgically implanted into an empty scrotum to address the psychological trauma and cosmetic issues related to:
(1) loss of one or both testes to orchidectomy for torsion, mal-descent, trauma, infection or malignancy
(2) absence in cryptorchidism or agenesis in vasnishing testicle syndrome or
(3) gender re-alignment surgery in female-to-male transsexuals

Unilateral rupture was described in a patient with bilateral prosthetic testes, but our case differs as the spontaneous rupture occurred 33 years after implantation, which was subsequent to orchiectomy for neoplasia.
