Background. Undescended testis (UDT) or cryptorchidism is the most common genital anomaly seen in boys and can be treated surgically by orchidopexy. The age at which orchidopexy should be performed is controversial for both congenital and acquired UDT. Methods. A decision analysis is performed in which all available knowledge is combined to assess the outcomes of orchidopexy at different ages. Results. Without surgery, unilateral congenital UDT and bilateral congenital UDT are associated with… Expand
Adult orchidopexy: A survey on necessity of intraoperative testicular biopsy
TLDR
No report of pre-malignant changes carcinoma in-situ status (CIS) was found in all 100 patients and the indication of doing testicular biopsy in adults suffering from UDT can be revised. Expand
Management of Undescended Testis in Children in Aba Nigeria
TLDR
There is a need to educate parents, traditional birth attendants, midwives and doctors in the authors' sub-region to ensure earlier presentation and treatment of anomalies of descent of the testes. Expand
Does early orchidopexy improve fertility?
TLDR
A review examines the histological findings, hormonal data, and paternity rates from those who have undergone orchidopexy at varying ages and summarizes current recommendations aimed at preserving fertility as much as possible in this population of boys. Expand
A collective review of cases with cryptorchidism managed in a teaching hospital in Sudan
TLDR
Late presentation observed in this study is alarming and action should be taken by spreading awareness in the community and ensuring adequate neonatal and children examination in order to avoid the complications. Expand
Epidemiology, Classification and Management of Undescended Testes: Does Medication Have Value in its Treatment?
TLDR
The success rates of treatment modalities used in undescended testes, beginning from 1930 to the present, are evaluated to draw attention to the possible risks and benefits and also the efficacy of hormonal therapy in the management of the disorder, which is still a controversial issue. Expand
Epidemiology, pathophysiology, and pathogenesis of cryptorchidism. Evaluation and treatment of undescended testicle
TLDR
The authors discuss the epidemiology, pathophysiology, aetiology, and treatment of undescended testicle in boys. Expand
Role of primary chemotherapy in management of large tumors of undescended testis: Our experience
TLDR
Surgical removal of the primary tumor in UDT with or without bulky metastasis is complicated, but primary chemotherapy with cisplatin-based regimen is a good option in such cases. Expand
Ascensus testis: Feit of Fictie?
TLDR
Het testiculair volume bij 38 jongens met verworven niet-ingedaalde testes die spontaan ingedaald zijn tijdens de puberteit is een hypothetisch model voor de pathogenese van verw orven cryptorchidie. Expand
Testicular torsion: a 15‐year single‐centre clinical and histological analysis
TLDR
The demographic, epidemiological and clinical factors of boys seen at a single centre who underwent surgical exploration for testicular torsion were reviewed. Expand
Maternal Gestational Smoking, Diabetes, Alcohol Drinking, Pre-Pregnancy Obesity and the Risk of Cryptorchidism: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
TLDR
Maternal gestational smoking, but not maternal pre-pregnancy overweight or obesity, was associated with increased cryptorchidism risk in the offspring and sensitivity analysis revealed an unstable result for the association between maternal diabetes, alcohol drinking and crypt orchidism. Expand

[Undescended testis: current views and advice for treatment].
TLDR
In the Netherlands, the high number of late orchidopexies is due to surgery for acquired UDT, and the guidelines of the first development conference on 'non-scrotal testis' dating back to 1986 should be revised on several points. Expand
[Acquired non-scrotal testis in boys: an underrated phenomenon].
TLDR
Very likely, the relatively high incidence of orchidopexy operations in the Netherlands is mainly due to operative treatment of the acquired undescended testis. Expand
Further evidence for spontaneous descent of acquired undescended testes.
TLDR
A conservative wait and see approach to acquired undescended testis until puberty could prevent more than half of the boys from undergoing orchiopexy and it does not seem detrimental in terms of testicular volume. Expand

TLDR
The unanimous conclusion of the group was that surgery is generally the preferred mode of treatment, rather than hCG or GnRH treatments, which results in about 95% anatomical success, with a low risk of complications. Expand
[The undescended testis: arguments in favour of early treatment, provided retractile testis and acquired non-scrotal testis have been excluded].
TLDR
Recent data indicate that the normal maturation process, which will ultimately lead to a normal quantity and quality of germ cells, is impaired as early as in the first half year of a newborn's life, and it is advised to perform orchidopexy in the second half of the first year of the newborns life.

Long-term outcome of scrotal incision orchiopexy for undescended testis.
TLDR
The results of this study have shown that scrotal orchiopexy is simple, safe, and effective in selected cases compared with the standard two-incision approach in the treatment of the palpable undescended testis. Expand
The epidemiology of congenital cryptorchidism, testicular ascent and orchiopexy.
TLDR
Data suggest that cryptorchidism may be acquired in a significant subset of cases, with close monitoring of young boys spontaneous ascent of testes from a scrotal to a suprascrotal position with possible adverse effects on germ cell development and fertility potential. Expand
Prescrotal orchiopexy: an alternative surgical approach for the palpable undescended testis.
TLDR
Prescrotal orchiopexy is a successful procedure in select patients with a low complication rate and has the advantage of a single, perfectly cosmetic incision. Expand

TLDR
The Paediatric Urology Workgroup of the Dutch Urological Association summarizes its current recommendations on treatment strategies for primary and acquired non-scrotal testes in boys and recommends that boys with NST should be referred as early as the age of 6 months. Expand
