ABSTRACT: Orchidopexy in a child below 2 years of age is a standard modality of treatment for undescended testis. Extended retroperitoneal dissection with inguinal dissection is a safe and effective procedure for inguinal as well as high-undescended testis. It leads to increased cord length without vascular compromise for its scrotal placement and later function. This is important for subsequent fertility. This study evaluates prospectively, the results of extended retroperitoneal dissection, performed in 60 cases of undescended testis with regard to permanent testicular position, and testicular atrophy.
