Long-term results of undescended testicle operative treatment

, : Long-term results of undescended testicle operative treatment. Progress in Pediatric Surgery 10: 296-304

Men affected with unilateral and bilateral undescended testicles have been examined 10 to 20 years after orchidopexy. The examined patients were divided into groups of individuals operated before and after the 8th year of life. Fertility, structure of the genitals, somatotype, psychosexual behavior, and plasma testosterone levels were tested. It was found that a significant number of cryptorchid patients was infertile, especially the bilateral ones. Abnormalities in the structure of the genitals, somatotype, and in some cases psychosexual behavior disorders as well as plasma testoterone levels lower than normal, have also been found.

Recently, we have shown that two proteasome inhibitors, MG132 and lactacystin, induce hyperphosphorylation and trimerization of HSF1, and transactivate heat shock genes at 37 degrees C. Here, we examined the effects of these proteasome inhibitors...
