Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cryptorchidism is the most common disorder of male sexual differentiation. Pre-operative assessment and localization of undescended testes by various investigatory modalities have been of limited clinical value. The recent use of diagnostic and therapeutic laparoscopy for undescended testis peri-operatively has been shown to be safe and informative in the planning of appropriate surgical management. The authors' initial experience with this procedure, for five patients with unilateral undescended testis, is presented.
