Five young males with bilateral nonpalpable testes are presented. In all instances, the testes were localized by laparoscopy. Only one patient had unilateral anorchia at laparotomy which was demonstrated by this technique. Laparoscopy may be more accurate than other nonoperative techniques for localizing nonpalpable testes. Additionally, it facilitates(More)
The authors describe the abnormalities of gonadal function developing in a patient with prostate cancer who had received estrogen therapy continuously for 6 years. The pretreatment prostate biopsy showed well developed acini consistent with normal androgenization and adenocarcinoma. Twelve years later, 6 years after discontinuation of estrogen treatment,(More)
The reasons for the discrepancy between reappearance of sperm in the ejaculate following vasovasostomy and pregnancy rates remain obscure. To determine the possible adverse effects of reanastomosis upon the structure of the vas deferens, immediate microsurgical vasovasostomy was performed on 60 adult Sprague-Dawley rats. The fine structure of the mucosa, as(More)
The fine structure of the vas deferens was studied by SEM and TEM after vasectomy and delayed vasovasostomy in 18 dogs. Mucosal changes were observed in the testicular end of the vas deferens after vasectomy. Identical changes have been observed in the vas deferens in humans after vasectomy. Microsurgical vasovasostomy resulted in reappearance of normal(More)
We have reported a sibship in which all three males had azoospermia and a normal 46,XY karyotype. The mechanisms for the production of azoospermia were Kallmann's syndrome and bilateral agenesis of the globus major (head of the epididymis) in the proband and bilateral agenesis of the vasa deferentia and seminal vesicles in the two brothers. It is suggested(More)
Mucosal morphology of the vas deferens was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) after vasectomy and vasectomy reversal in dogs. Morphological changes occurred in the proximal (testicular) end of the vas deferens after vasectomy. Luminal dilatation, with an increase in 70% mean diameter, occurred due to(More)
Twelve adult mongrel dogs underwent unilateral division of the spermatic vessels and contralateral testicular revascularization to compare the effect of these techniques on histology of the testes. Testicular weight reduced to average 6.5 Gm (normal 20 +/- 5 Gm) where division of the vessels was performed. The contralateral side maintained its weight and(More)
A modified technique of two-layer microsurgical vasovasostomy is described which permits continuous inspection of the lumen. A stricture-free anastomosis was documented in experimental animals by mating and scanning electron microscopic studies. The success of this procedure is attributed to precise placement of fine mucosal sutures, minimal fibrosis, and a(More)
