ZHENG, Yong; YUAN, Qianqian; HE, Xin  and  LEI, Yueshan. A Rare Variation of the Testicular Blood Supply by the Deferential Artery. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.3, pp.950-952. ISSN 0717-9502.

Any compression of testicular arteries may lead to loss of spermatogenesis and gonadal hormone production, existence of the variational arteries is accountable in cases of vasoligation, orchidopexy and other surgical approach on them. Anomalies of the testicular blood arteries were observed during dissection of the pelvic cavity in a 68-year-old male cadaver. This report describes a very rare case of lack of testicular arteries. For the blood supply to the testis, thick deferential arteries form some vascular winding and loops and course accompanied by deferent duct to the testis. This case report would serve as ray of light for knowledge of the possible variations of the testicular arteries during surgical procedures.

Keywords : Deferential artery; Variation; Umbilical artery.
