This study describes the effects of Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBP) on testicular damage induced by cadmium (Cd). Adult male rats were i.p. injected with CdCl2 (4mg/Kg, once) with or without LBP pretreatment (300mg/Kg orally, once a day, for 30days). Testis weight, morphological/histological structure and oxidative stress parameters were evaluated. Several adverse effects were observed after CdCl2 injection, with a significant decrease in body/testis weight ratio (P<0.05), gross morphological changes with hyperemia of the parenchyma, increased volume and alteration in the structure of the seminiferous tubules...

BACKGROUND: Phthalates and BPA are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) widely used in consumer products. Evidence suggests that phthalate and BPA exposure alters steroid hormone levels in adults, while in utero exposure has been associated with altered fetal reproductive development in boys. However, the impact of exposure during distinct critical windows of in utero development on hormone concentrations and sexual maturation during the pubertal transition has not been examined. The objective of this study was to assess trimester-specific in utero phthalate and BPA exposure in relation to measures of reproductive development among peripubertal boys in a Mexico City birth cohort...

Management of testicular rupture with a large tunical defect may not be feasible without excision of viable tissue. This study describes the use of a vascularized tunica vaginalis flap, without debridement of viable tissue, in four adolescents. Postoperative ultrasound showed good blood flow and 80% volume of the contralateral testis in two cases. Postoperative exam revealed normal exam and ultrasonographic appearance in three patients, the fourth was demonstrated to be small and undescended during evaluation of contralateral testicular torsion...

BACKGROUND: Infections of the genital tract are considered common causes of male fertility disorders, with a prevalence of 6-10%. Most of the affected men are asymptomatic. The diagnostic evaluation is based mainly on laboratory testing. Inconsistent diagnostic criteria have been applied to date, and this may explain the controversial debate about the role of infection and inflammation in the genital tract as a cause of infertility. The risk of an irreversible fertility disorder should not be underestimated...

Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare congenital malformation. Since it lacks characteristic features, very few cases of SGF have been diagnosed preoperatively. Laparoscopy was effective in both diagnosing and surgically treating this condition. Herein, we reported left side SGF in a male patient who was diagnosed during laparoscopic exploration, and Fowler-Stephens orchidopexy was implemented at the same time. The patient was followed up for one year. At a 6-month follow-up, the left scrotum demonstrated swelling and the internal contents were hard...

OBJECTIVE: This article discusses scrotal ultrasonic features of patients with a congenital bilateral absence of the vas deferens (CBAVD). METHODS: Thirty-six patients with CBAVD were examined to obtain image characteristics of the bilateral testicle and epididymis by ultrasound. Each patient received a pathological examination of the sperm by percutaneous epididymal biopsy. RESULTS: Scrotal ultrasonic features were as follows: (1) testicular volumes were normal in all the 36 patients; (2) 21% (15/72) of the heads of epididymis, 67% (48/72) of the heads and bodies of epididymis, and 12% (9/72) of the heads, bodies, and tails of epididymis could be shown in the 72 epididymides of the 36 patients; (3) cystic or tubular dilation of the epididymis was obvious in all 72 abnormal epididymides; and (4) bilateral vas deferens could not be found in these patients...

BACKGROUND: Malignancies and cisplatin-based chemotherapy are both known to correlate with a high risk of venous thrombotic events (VTT). In testicular cancer, the information regarding the incidence and reason of VTT in patients undergoing cisplatin-based chemotherapy is still discussed controversially. Moreover, no risk factors for developing a VTT during cisplatin-based chemotherapy have been elucidated so far. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 153 patients with testicular cancer undergoing cisplatin-based chemotherapy at our institution for the development of a VTT during or after chemotherapy...

Our objective was to assess the differential diagnostic value of classification of obstructive versus nonobstructive azoospermia by scrotal ultrasound. Forty patients with azoospermia were selected for our study (ages, 23-35; average, 29 ± 5.34 years). Patients were divided into the obstructive (17) or nonobstructive (23) azoospermia category. Twenty "healthy" volunteers were selected for the control group. We observed the testis, epididymis, and vas deferens in all subjects. Testicular volumes were calculated and compared with the control group for both obstructive and nonobstructive groups...

A differential diagnosis of testicular torsion and epididymitis has serious importance for testicular health. In emergency conditions, if testicular torsion goes unnoticed and epididymo-orchitis is diagnosed, organ loss may occur. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of haematologic parameters for the diagnosis of both testicular torsion and epididymo-orchitis and for differential diagnosis of these two diseases. Patients were divided into three groups as those undergoing surgery for testicular torsion, those receiving medical treatment for epididymitis and a healthy control group...
