Is Laparoscopy for Non-palpable Testes a Well-known Entity?

We report our laparoscopy results in non-palpable testes cases and emphasized the utility of laparoscopy in unilateral non-palpable testes cases in contrary to a previously published paper. We also discussed the different aspects of laparoscopic approach for non-palpable testis.


Objective: Laparoscopy has been accepted as best diagnostic tool and suggested as the treatment of choice for non-palpable testes cases. However, its use in unilateral non-palpable testis case has previously been debated.

Methods: The clinical records of the non-palpable testes cases that were managed with laparoscopy between January 2011 and December 2013 were retrospectively reviewed.
