Testicular Function after Torsion of the Spermatic
In the escin group, when severity of varicocele was classified to mild, moderate or severe degree according to the diameter of the spermatic
vein, the improvement rates in disease severity were higher in the mild (41.
Infertility can sometimes be an after effect of an infection or vasectomy which can cause blockages in the spermatic
cord ( tube that transports sperm from testes to penis) or cause some men to produce antibodies to his own sperm, which prevents it from penetrating the egg.
Nitric oxide synthase and xanthine oxidase activities in the spermatic
vein of patients with varicocele: a potential role for nitric oxide and peroxynitrite in sperm dysfunction.
6,10-13) Locations outside the head and neck include the pleura, mediastinum, spermatic
cord, ovary, intestines, kidney, pancreas, breasts, and skin.
The right and left spermatic
vein were exposed and ligated completely with a 4-0 nylon suture as described by Sofikitis and Miyagawa .
The 32-year-old computer programmer, who lives in Worcester, had suffered a testicular torsion in 1997 which occurs when the spermatic
cord twists around the testes, cutting off blood supply.
However, the separation is incomplete, with small masses of spermatic
tissue among the ovarian follicles or some ovarian follicles in the spermatic
portion of the gonad.
Metastases were located in the lymph nodes (n = 6, 67%), liver (n = 5, 56%), bone (n = 4, 44%), lung (n = 3, 33%), contralateral kidney (n = 2, 22%), brain (n = 1, 11%), suprarenal (n = 1, 11%), spermatic
cord (n = 1, 11%), soft tissues (n = 1, 11%), and mesentery (n = 1, 11%).
Testicular torsion is twisting of the spermatic
cord usually confined to the mesentery that joins the testis to the epididymis (1).
Fluid-like internal contents of the mass (17-20 HU) had spilled into the peritoneal cavity, causing moderate ascites, and had extended along the inguinal canals bilaterally adjacent to spermatic
cords (Figure 3).
Benign smooth muscle cell lesions are frequently found in a diversity of body organs, such as the breast, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, bladder, and skin (1), but they are extremely rare in the spermatic
cord or paratesticular tissue of the male genital tract.
