  • Neurons for Ejaculation and Factors Affecting Ejaculation
    by Kiran Kumar Soni on May 28, 2022

    Ejaculation is a reflex and the last stage of intercourse in male mammals. It consists of two coordinated phases, emission and expulsion. The emission phase consists of secretions from the vas deferens, seminal vesicle, prostate, and Cowper's gland. Once these contents reach the posterior urethra, movement of the contents becomes inevitable, followed by the expulsion phase. The urogenital organs are synchronized during this complete event. The L3-L4 (lumbar) segment, the spinal cord region...

  • Immune cell characterization in spontaneous autoimmune orchitis in dogs
    by C Pröbstl on May 28, 2022

    With a prevalence of up to 35% in dogs with reproductive problems, azoospermia is one of the most important reasons for male infertility. Non-obstructive azoospermia, without clinical symptoms, but histopathological damage of the testicular tissue and immune cell infiltration is referred to as spontaneous autoimmune orchitis (AIO) in the literature. Published cases in dogs describe immune cell infiltration; however, there is no consent about the involved immune cell types. We aimed to...

  • The importance of the urologist in male oncology fertility preservation
    by Lionel A Micol on May 10, 2022

    CONCLUSION: We show that SSR and SSCR in an oncological context are valid treatment options with a high success rate for patients in which sperm cryopreservation from semen is impossible. By providing an effective pathway, fertility preservation is possible with minimal delay to oncological treatment.
