Target. To assess the effect of Bassini inguinal hernioplasty on testicular volume in the early and late postoperative periods. Material and methods. Testicular volume before surgery was studied in 125 patients of various age groups. Inguinal hernia repair according to the Bassini method was performed in 30 patients who had their testicular volume determined by ultrasound in the early postoperative period and 1 year after surgery. Results. With inguinal hernias, the volume of the testicle on the side of the hernial protrusion depends on the age of the patient and does not differ from the volume of the testicle on the contralateral side. Tension inguinal hernioplasty according to Bassini in the early postoperative period is accompanied by an increase in the volume of the testicle, and in the late postoperative period by a decrease in its volume. Conclusion. Inguinal hernioplasty according to the Bassini technique in the late postoperative period leads to a decrease in the volume of the testicle on the side of the surgical intervention.
