Özet

Background/Purpose: The cremaster muscle (CM) has been considered to participate in regulation of blood flow and temperature of the testis. Its contribution to testicular descent has been suggested. However, there is limited information about the CM in physiological and pathological states. Therefore, an experimental study has been conducted to evaluate and compare the contractile and electrophysiological properties of CM in boys with descended or undescended testes.
