Abstract

Serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), a marker of equine cryptorchidism, is detectable in intact and cryptorchid stallions but not in geldings because it is secreted from Sertoli cells. A 4-year-old uncastrated Thoroughbred racehorse had no visible testes; therefore, the horse was considered a...

Abstract

Cryptorchidism is a developmental disorder which can be diagnosed by a variety of different tests. Still, equine field veterinarians often rely on endocrine markers to detect retained testicular tissue. This report describes the value of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) as a diagnostic marker for...

Abstract

This report describes an unusual case of unilateral abdominal cryptorchidism in a Shetland pony. On the cryptorchid side, no testicular structures were present in the inguinal area but testicular/epididymal remnants at the distal end of a pedunculated structure could be discerned in the abdomen at...

Abstract

Pikeperch, Sander lucioperca (L.), has been identified as one of the most perspective candidates for diversification of freshwater aquaculture. However, some aspects of production are still being developed, and controlled reproduction is one of the bottlenecks. The aim of the present study was to...

AbstractFull Text

Cryptorchidism is a partial or total failure of testicular descent. For a proper diagnosis different methods are required. The main aim of this study was to compare different diagnostic methods. Sixty two horses (15 stallions, 32 cryptorchids and 15 geldings) were used in the experiment. They were...

Abstract

Stallion castration is one of the most common surgical procedures performed on horses. The opening of the abdominal cavity and the work with finger thick blood-vessels make this operation liable to frequent complications. Regularly, castrations have serious, often deadly complications such as:...

Abstract

Leydig cell acute steroidogenic response in 7 young Mangalarga stallions (2.6-4.5-years-old) was evaluated through human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) stimulation. The animals were treated with 5000 UI (HCG) Vetecor, i.v., in bolus at 0800 h. Plasma samples were collected by venipuncture at 0700 h...

Abstract

Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) (a single intravenous injection with 0.042 mg busereline acetate) was administered to control stallions (n=5), aged stallions (n=5) and stallions with lack of libido (n=5). Jugular blood samples were taken at -10, 0, 10, 20, 40 and 80 minutes after treatment...

Abstract

This study investigated the regulation of growth hormone (GH) release in stallions and tested the hypothesis that the somatotrophic axis influences testicular function. Basal plasma GH concentrations, effects of an experimental decrease of GH release on testicular function and an opioidergic...
