In the present article, a new technique of surgery for hydrocoele is described. This technique involves combination of plication and eversion of tunica vaginalis sac. This surgical method was compared with the standard operative procedures-Jabouley's and Lord's (25 patients in each group). Our technique required less suture material (average knots required were 4). The risk of injury to epididymis or testis appeared to be less and time required for surgery was 10 min. Thus the technique appeared to be simple and safe, even when carried out by junior surgeon.
