Abstract

In males with cryptorchidism, one or both testes do not descend into the scrotum thereby affecting among other things fertility. Testis size has been suggested to contribute to cryptorchidism. Therefore, the aim of our study was to estimate genetic parameters of cryptorchidism and testis size in...

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

Testes produce sperm, and investigations into gene expression in the testes will enhance the understanding of the roles of testicular genes in male reproduction. Cryptorchidism, the failure of one or both testes to descend into the scrotal sac, is a common congenital malformation in horses. The...

AbstractFull Text

Background: Cryptorchidism is characterized by the incomplete descent of one or both testicles to the scrotum, being a hereditary alteration and frequently an unilateral condition. Besides the sexual and aggressive behaviour, the retained testicle is commonly located in abdominal cavity, being...

Abstract

Objective: To report surgical management of 4 horses with cryptorchidism caused by failure of regression of the cranial suspensory ligament (CSL). Study Design: Retrospective case series. Animals: Cryptorchid horses (n=4). Methods: Horses with unilateral or bilateral cryptorchidism caused by...

Abstract

In the biological process of testicular spermatogenesis, the expression and interaction of many genes are regulated by microRNAs (miRNAs). However, comparisons of miRNA expression between descended testes (DTs) and undescended testes (UDTs) are rarely done in horses. In this study, we selected two...

Abstract

This case report describes the laparoscopic approach for removal of cystic intra-abdominal testicles in the standing colt. One 3-year-old Tobiano and one 2-year-old Warmblood colts were referred for abdominal cryptorchidectomy. The horses were clinically and ultrasonographically examined and a...

Abstract

Monorchidism describes the complete absence of one testis and is rare in horses. This study reports the clinical findings in 10 horses diagnosed as monorchids by standing laparoscopy or exploratory laparotomy. Hospital records for all horses undergoing cryptorchidectomy (2000-2016) in four centres...

Abstract

Cryptorchidism in horses is a relatively common disease and is characterized by failure in the descent of one or both testicles the abdominal cavity to the scrotum. The objective of this research was to obtain clinical and surgical data of cryptorchidism in horses by determining the frequency and...

Abstract

Cryptorchidism is a defect in males where one or both testes fail to descend normally into the scrotum. If both testes are retained, the stallion will be infertile. There are few studies of the prevalence of the condition in horses based on field data, and heritability estimates for equine ...
