ABSTRACT: This is a prospective study of 77 patients to document the postoperative outcome of conventional management of undescended testes. Eighty five percent of the patients who under went surgery were available for follow up at 1 month and 6 months. The mean age at operation was 5.34 +/-3.48 years. Sixty percent of undescended testes were palpable, 80 percent of which were found in the superficial inguinal pouch at surgery. Ninety six percent of palpable undescended testes could be placed in the scrotal position initially. Ninety one percent remained in the scrotum at 6 month follow up. In 40 percent of cases, the testes were impalpable. Fifty percent of these testes were intra-abdominal and 10 percent were absent on exploration. Seventy percent could be placed in the scrotum. At 6 months follow up, of the total 32 cases, only 68.75 percent were in the scrotal position. Nineteen percent of impalpable testes and 6 percent of palpable testes had atrophied. There was a significant increases in the mean testicular volume, 6 months after successful orchiopexy as compared to the preoperative size. Age at operation did not alter the improvement in testicular volume after successful orchiopexy.
