Natural arterial and venous anastomoses between three main vessels of the scrotal organs and spermatic cord serve as the anatomic basis for the formation of a complex natural vasculogenic stabilizing mechanism for the protection of the testicle, epididymis, and vas deferens from the negative exo-and endogenous factors — the vascular buffer system of the scrotal organs. Its functioning is based on the unity of three hemodynamic components: antiischemic (redistribution and reduction of arterial blood deficiency), antihyperemic (adequate temporary deposition of arterial and venous blood), and hypotensive (reduction of critical pressure of the arterial and venous blood) mechanisms.
