The function of a new experimental microsurgical model of tubulovasostomy is evaluated. The model is represented by an end-to-end tubulodeferential anastomosis after removal of the proximal (juxtaepididymal) half of the vas deferens and segmental unfolding of the distal part of the epididymal tubule. Both anastomosed segments are evaluated for(More)
Testicular descent is a complex mechanism influenced by hormonal and anatomical factors. Whatever the age of the patient or the descent technique used for either one or both testes, there is a risk of degeneration and sterility counts. Anatomical studies and the results of sperm are important, hence the importance of establishing a precise anatomical and(More)
The wall of the eye bulbs of 15 chick embryos, immediately after their transfer to Hanks fluid, was irradiated with a CO2 laser, focused on the 12th conjunctival papilla or on its prospective area. This 'in vitro' irradiation was performed under the following main parameters: (a) beam power congruent to 4W; (b) exposure time = 1/30 sec; (c) thickness of the(More)
A new reconstructive microsurgical model of the epididymo-deferential complex was performed in the rat to study the plastic adaptation of the distal epididymal tubule in transposition and/or substitution procedures. The model consists of three steps: endoluminal stripping of the mucosa of the proximal half of the vas deferens; pull-through technique for the(More)
According to new trends and terms in microsurgery, the intra-serous proximal hemideferentectomy is compared to the classical vasectomy in rat. The effects of these surgical models are evaluated on morphological and functional bases. The anatomo-pathological parameters considered (stenosis and leakage of the anastomosis of the epididymal tubule conseguent on(More)
The histopathological aspects of the testis in rat after intra-serous proximal hemideferentectomy and end-to-end tubulo-vasostomy are evaluated. The histomorphometric variations of the convoluted seminiferous tubules and the quantitative modifications of the stages of spermatogenesis are correlated with the obstruction's degree of the tubulo-deferential(More)
