Page 2 Cryptorchidism is a common finding in pediatric practice,
Page 3 21% of preterm male infant. 1.8-4 % of full term boys. 0.8% of 1 year old boys. The proportion of impalpable testis has been reported up to 20% of all cryptorchied boys.
Page 4 A variety of imaging modalities have been used to detect the impalpable testis, Ultrasound, Computed tomography, Magnetic resonance imaging, Arterography and venography. Non are as sensitive as laparoscopy for accurate localization of the intra abdominal testes.
Page 5 Cortesi et al first reported the use of laparoscopy in the surgical management of impalpable testes in 1976. Initially, laparoscopy was used only for localization before open surgical exploration. It is only recently that laparoscopy been deemed a means of both diagnosis and treatment.
Page 6 Aim Of The Study The purposes of our study was: To evaluate the role of laparoscopy in localizing impalpable testes. The management strategy for both unilateral and bilateral impalpable testes.
Page 7 Patients And Methods Throughout the period between January 2005 to December 2008, A 36 patients with impalpable testes were admitted to the pediatric surgery centre at Al khansa teaching hospital in Mosul /Iraq, Laparoscopy done for them to assess and manage 42 impalpable testes.

Page 18 laparoscopy has a safe, reliable and accurate role in management of impalpable testis. It also direct the surgeon to chose the proper technique for orchiopexy. One stage assisted laparoscopic orchiopexy. Single stage Fowler Stephen laparoscopic orchiopexy. Two stages Fowler Stephen laparoscopic orchiopexy. Conclusion
