Abstract

Regarding guidelines the average age of cryptorchid boys receiving orchidopexy at the University Clinic of Würzburg was way too high between 2005 and 2010. To some extent this fact can be attributed to the hesitant manner of therapy shown by local paediatricians. An improvement in the time of operation is definitely possible and necessary in order to optimise the outcome.
