Our aim was to investigate the long-term preventive effect of propofol on testicular ischemia–reperfusion injury in a rat model. Twenty-four adult male Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups (n = 6 for each group), control, sham-operated, torsion/detorsion (T/D) and T/D + propofol. Testicular ischemia was achieved by twisting the left testis 720° clockwise for 2 h. Half an hour before detorsion, 50 mg/kg propofol was given intraperitoneally to the T/D + propofol group… CONTINUE READING
