Figure 1: (a) The bilateral testes in sham group and the contralateral testes in date palm-treated group indicated normal seminiferous tubules. (b and c) the ipsilateral testes in testicular torsion/detorsion group showed seminiferous tubular atrophy and spermatogenesis arrest (star), severe hemorrhage, and edema (Δ) between the seminiferous tubules, increased vacuolization between epithelial cells (v), disordered, sloughed germinal cells within the seminiferous tubules (white arrowhead), and giant cell (black arrowhead). (d and e) (The ipsilateral testes of the date palm-treated group); seminiferous tubule architecture was more regular and normal, but showed moderate sloughed germinal cells (white arrowhead). Vacuolization and spermatogenesis arrest observed in the torsion/detorsion group were not seen in this group. Hemorrhage and edema were also mild (black arrow). (f) The contralateral testes in testicular torsion/detorsion group displayed immature germinal cells in the lumen (white arrowhead) (H and E, ×40)
