Title: Undescended testis: Pattern of presentation and outcome of surgical management
Author: Mahamoud, Mawia
Abstract: Introduction: UDT is failure of the testis to descend from retroperitoneum during development to its normal position in the scrotum. Objectives: To evaluate patients with UDT, their presentation, diagnosis and treatment. Methods: Prospective study performed in 89 patients with UDT at Soba University Hospital and Police Teaching Hospital, from November 2003 to November 2004. Data tabulated included personal data; presentation, family history, examination, investigations, treatment and outcome. Results: Empty scrotum is the main presenting symptom discovered by parents, doctors or patient himself in 100%. Orchidopexy is the treatment done to eighty seven (89.6%) patients as one stage, 10.1% as two stages. Orchidectomy was done to 2 patients because of marked atrophy. Conclusion: early detection of UDT and treatment is associated with improvement of testicular growth and spermatognisis and hence high fertility rate and to avoid complications.(1)
