The authors summarise the short history of the laparoscopy, and main steps of its use in international and Hungarian practice of urological surgery. They evaluate the possibility of laparoscopy in paediatric urological practice. Finally, they present their experience with this minimally invasive technique from 1995. Between October 1995 and September 1998, 83 laparoscopic procedures were performed. In 59 patients the vena testicularis were ligated by laparoscopy and in 22 patients 24 non palpable testes were diagnosed and operated. In 9 of the cases laparoscopic orchidopexy was performed. The authors demonstrate their operative technique. All laparoscopic interventions were tolerated well by children and they were treated without any complication. Postoperative pain medication were given for 5 children. The operative time for varix ligation ranged from 15 and 20 minutes, and for laparoscopic orchidopexy from 30 and 40 minutes. The recurrence rate of varicocele was found to be 1.5%, and postoperative hydrocele developed in one patient (1.5%).
