Özet

Background/Purpose: The mechanism of testicular descent remains controversial. The processus vaginalis (PV) contains smooth muscle and should have contractile activity that may contribute to descent. This study was designed to evaluate the smooth muscle of PVs associated with incomplete obliteration for spontaneous activities and responses to various stimuli, to determine if differences exist according to sex, diagnostic source, or location of the testis.
