Effect of morphine on ischemia-reperfusion injury: experimental study in testicular torsion rat model.

OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of morphine on reperfusion injury due to testicular torsion-detorsion (T/D). METHODS We divided 36 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats into six groups. Testicular ischemia was achieved by twisting the right testis 720 degrees counterclockwise for 1 hour, and reperfusion was allowed for 4 hours after detorsion. The baseline… CONTINUE READING
