Laparoscopic management of persistent Müllerian duct remnants associated with an abdominal testis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

In recent years, laparoscopy has evolved from a purely diagnostic procedure in the management of nonpalpable testis to a definitive therapeutic intervention. Additional genital malformations occur in association with cryptorchidism, but reports of laparoscopic management of such entities do not exist. Herein, we describe the laparoscopic removal of persistent Müllerian duct remnants (uterus and round ligament) in combination with an orchiectomy of an abnormally small abdominal testis. This technique expands the versatility of laparoscopic management of cryptorchidism to include the resection of associated congenital anomalies.
