Testis torsion-induced aspermatogenesis is not necessarily due to permanent loss of blood flow nor to dysfunctional Leydig cells or Sertoli cells. This investigation was undertaken to gain further insight into the mechanism underlying torsion-induced germ cell loss. Male rats were subjected to 1-h or 2-h ischemia-inducing torsion, and testes were examined at either 1, 2, 4, 24, or 48 h after torsion, depending on the study. Testes were examined for evidence of 1) in situ apoptosis by the… CONTINUE READING
