Effects of experimental torsion of the spermatic cord on Leydig cell function in the guinea pig testis: An ultrastructural stereological analysis

An ultrastructural stereological analysis of Leydig cells of the guinea pig testis was carried out following surgically induced testicular torsion. Morphometric analyses of the Leydig cells of the experimental group of animals revealed an increase in the nucelar and mitochondrial volume and a decrease in the lipid volume, in comparison to those in the… CONTINUE READING
