Testicular autotransplantation in children

American Journal of Surgery
J UptonJ E Murray

Abstract

A series of 10 microvascular autotransfers of impalpable intraabdominal testes has been reported. The viability rate was 60 percent as determined by growth and size of the transferred testis. Long-term endocrine and fertility studies are needed to determine the function of these gonads. The spermatic vasculature was unpredictable and showed many variations. Indications should be very carefully individualized.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
