The percentage of high abdominal testes ranges between 5-14% of all the cases of cryptorchism. They are bilateral in 20% of cases. Surgical treatment in these cases is still controversial: orchiectomy, 'staged orchiopex', high division of spermatic vessels are the methods more adopted. None of these, however, appears fully satisfactory. Herein we report an experimental evaluation of a microsurgical technique, recently described, for bringing abdominal testes down to the scrotum, performing an actual testis autotransplantation.
