To the Editor:—
In the past four months a number of my patients who have had injections for sclerosing inguinal hernias have reported that they have been sexually impotent since the injections of the sclerosing fluid. One dated back to eight years, several to two years, and one was of four months.I think the patient should be told of the possibility of sexual impotence following the use of these injections in all inguinal hernias.
