MetadataShow full item record
This study aimed at establishing the prevalence of undescended testes (UDT) among deceased males, 18 years of age and older, formerly resident in Lusaka. During a 6 month period in 2014, 384 deceased men aged between 18 and 94 years were examined. One out of the 384 candidates had right-sided unilateral UDT. The subject with the UDT was 40 years of age. The mean age at death of the examined material was 39 years. At 95 % confidence internal, the UDT point prevalence of 0.26 % was obtained. The findings of this applied anatomy research strongly suggests that UDT in deceased adults at UTH is low.
