1 INSERT YOUR NAME on behalf of the PSTRN ORCHidopexy: does Earlier Surgery affect TesticulaR Atrophy?

2 What we know!  Undescended testes are a risk factor for testicular cancer and reduced fertility.  Latest scientific evidence suggest that the earlier you correct them the better.

3 Audit standards Consensus statement on undescended testes (UDT)   Timing of surgery: 3-6 months of age now ideal 6-12 months of age is acceptable

4 What we don’t know!  How early are we performing surgery for undescended testis following the latest BAPU guidance?  What are the early post-operative outcomes?

5 Aims  To document age at referral and age at surgery  To establish testicular atrophy rate after unilateral orchidopexy for palpable testis  Follow-up for at least 6 months post-op
