Surgical theraphy

  • If a testis has not concluded its descent by the age of six months (corrected for gestational age), and since spontaneous testicular descent is unlikely to occur after that age, surgery should be performed within the subsequent year, and by the age of eighteen months at the latest.
  • In addition, early orchidopexy can be followed by partial catch-up testicular growth, which is not the case in delayed surgery.
  • All these findings recommend performing early orchidopexy between the ages of six and twelve months.
