The article focuses on semen analysis performed on adulthood to determine total germ cells hispathology at orchiopexy. The study was conducted by researchers in the U.S. and it was found that cryptorchidism is associated with sub fertility. Testis biopsies in patients with cryptorchidism showed low germ cell counts. The results obtained showed that testis biopsy at orchiopexy are limited in future fertility prediction in unilateral undescended testis but more reliable in bilateral testis.
