Abstract

Equine cryptorchidism is examined by a review of the literature. Possible causes of testicular retention as they relate to normal testicular descent are proposed. Current methods of cryptorchidectomy are compared and a parainguinal method, as performed in the Large Animal Clinic at Iowa State University, is examined for its comparative advantages and disadvantages.
