The early effects of ligation of the ductuli efferentes on testicular ultrastructure were studied in adult rats. As soon as 24 hours after the operation a large number of vacuoles appeared in the cytoplasm of Sertoli cells; vacuolization persisted for as long as 9 days, but localized in the apical part of the cells. Giant multinucleated cells containing annular clumps of chromatin were observed 1 day after ligation. The number of giant cells increased steadily as well as the alterations shown… CONTINUE READING
