Localisation and treatment of impalpable `undescended testes is diffcult by conventional methods. 41 consecutive patients with 50 impalpable testes were treated by laparoscopic surgery over last 6 years. We have successfully performed single-stage laparoscopic orchiopexy in 31 cases and two-stage Fowler Stephens orchiopexy in 3 cases. Detailed technique is described. The technique definitely diagnoses the location of undescended impalpable testes and is a superior method of orchiopexy for impalpable testes. There were no complications. None of the testes atrophied after orchiopexy over the follow-up period of 3 months to 6 years.
