PurposeThe anatomy of gubernaculum testis (GT) is often discussed; however, the postnatal anatomy of the GT or scrotal ligament (SL) is rarely described. Hence, we performed an anatomical and histological study to analyze histologically the structures between testis and scrotum.MethodsWe performed anatomical dissections on 25 human fresh cadavers’ testes. Each testis was removed with its envelopes and macroscopically analyzed. Then samples were included for histological study. Finally, they… CONTINUE READING
