Abstract

Objectives:

To assess the effect of peripheral nerve stimulation on neuropathic testicular pain.

Material and Methods:

A 30-year-old man with a four-year history of chronic testicular pain following scrotal hydrocele surgery had two percutaneous leads implanted in his groin and low-frequency stimulation of the cutaneous branch of the ilioinguinal and genital branch of the genitofemoral nerves.

Result:

At seven-month follow-up, the pain intensity had declined from 9/10 to 2/10 on the numeric rating scale.

Conclusion:

We report the successful implantation of an ilioinguinal and genitofemoral nerve stimulator for sustained suppression of intractable neuropathic testicular pain.
