Here are some ...: If orchidopexy is done for undescended testis in child, its goal is to help testicular growth so to preserve its function, but occasionally the vas or testicular artery may be comprimised so to affect sperm transportation and impair testicular growth and impact fetility; fortunetely, it is very rare. If done for torsion, it would be impossible to affect fertility, but help & relieve recurrent pain
