PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of decompression fasciotomy on testes undergoing torsion of the spermatic cord. METHODS: Spermatic cord torsion was induced in 40 Wistar testes for six and 12 hours. At the time of distortion, decompression fasciotomy was performed on half of the animals. After 42 days, the testicles were examined both macroscopically and microscopically. A non-parametric Mann-Whitney U-test was used for statistical analysis. The results were considered significant at p≤0.05.doi:10.1590/s0102-86502013000600004 pmid:23743679 fatcat:6rb37dpwobhkjokrz2qqcvru44
