Abstract


Background: Undescended testes are a condition when one or both of the testes have not descended into the scrotum at birth, but stay in the abdomen or only move part way down into the scrotum.

The aim of the study was to describe the pattern of clinical presentation, the ultrasound and intra-operative findings, and the outcome.

Materials and method: This is a retrospective study involving 120 medical files of adult patients with undescended testes.

Results: The mean age was 25.1 ± 4.7 years. Patients of age group 18 – 22 years were predominant (35.0%). Sixty eight (56.7%) presented to the hospital complaining of empty scrotum. another 33(27.5%) were complaining of infertility.

Undescended testes were (40.8%) in the left side, (32.5%) in the right side and bilateral (26.7%).

The sites of testes were (42.1%) not seen, inguinal (17.1%) and abdominal low (11.2%).

The operative options were one stage laparoscopic orchiopexy (35.5%), open orchiopexy (32.9%), first stage Fowler Stephen Procedure (18.4%), and (8.6%) orchiectomy.

Postoperative findings (52.7%) were alive, in their positions and normal. First Stage Fowler Stephen procedure were found in (18.4%), alive + small in their positions (23.0%) and atrophy (5.9%).

Conclusion: The best result of treatment of cryptorchidism is preferably in the childhood age, therefore careful physical examination of the baby at birth, regular follow-up of the infant and advice for early corrective surgery in cases of persistent undescended testis will go a long way in reducing the morbidity due to cryptorchidism.
