Successful autotransplantation of an intra-abdominal testis to the scrotum by microvascular technique

The Journal of Urology
S J Silber, J Kelly


An intra-abdominal testis in a child with prune belly syndrome was successfully transplanted to the scrotum by a microvascular technique. Immediate results were good with no palpable atrophy of the testis. Long-term results (fertility) will not be known for many years. The technique of microvascular anastomosis and its application to orchiopexy are described.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
