Özet

Background/Purpose: It is still controversial whether unilateral testicular torsion (TT) affects contralateral testis. The authors wanted to evaluate contralateral testicular damage in a rat model by the serum inhibin B levels, which is suggested as a marker of Sertoli cell function and spermatogenesis.
