This retrospective review evaluated the groups 'experience with patients undergoing late orchiopexy, defined as orchiopexy performed after four years of age.
An undescended testicle needs to be treated surgically — with a procedure called orchiopexy — before your child is 2 years old to increase his chance for fertility later in life.
Here's what you need to know after your son has undergone an orchiopexy:
Nearly the full range of pediatric urologic procedures is covered, including pyeloplasty, phalloplasty and hypospadias repairs, open and laparoscopic nephrectomy, robotic surgery, continent urinary diversion, orchiopexy, endoscopy, and bladder extrophy.
The group concluded that an informed primary care provider as well as parental education on the benefits of early orchiopexy are paramount.
Despite the fact it is generally diagnosed early in life, there is a subset of patients that come for orchiopexy at a later age.
Two-hundred consecutive children who underwent unilateral orchiopexy were prospectively evaluated at the time of surgery to determine the anatomical patency of the "third inguinal ring".
This study evaluated 191 late orchiopexy procedures in 177 patients.
