1,2) Patients most commonly present with testicular pain, a high-riding testicle with a possible horizontal lie, and an absent cremasteric reflex on the affected side.
Lower abdominal and cremasteric reflexes were lost and plantar reflexes were bilaterally extensor.
The testes may also be high riding due to the absence of the cremasteric reflex (Davenport, 1996; Kadish and Bolte, 1998).
There is collateral circulation from the deferential artery (a branch of the inferior vesical artery, which arises from the internal iliac) and the cremasteric artery (a branch of the inferior epigastric artery).
In vivo, intravital videomicroscopy was used to determine the effects of budlein A on LPS-induced leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions in the murine cremasteric microcirculation.
It is responsible for the cremasteric reflex - the involuntary drawing up of testicles when it is cold, when a man is frightened or when the scrotum is touched.
This response to changes in temperature is known as the cremasteric reflex, and is more sensitive in some men than others.
Recent evidence based on spermatic cord biopsies have reinforced the physiologic rationale behind MSCD by identifying dozens of microscopic (<1 mm) nerve fibres which travel within the cremasteric muscle fibres, perivasal tissues, lipomatous tissue, and the perivascular tissues of the spermatic cord.
Other conditions that predispose to TT include testicular tumors, anomalous spermatic cord attachment, elongated body of the epididymis, voluminous scrotum, hyperactive cremasteric reflex, and previous scrotal surgery.
The spermatic cord also contains the testicular, cremasteric, and deferential arteries, pampiniform plexus, nerves, and lymphatics.
In the skin of the scrotum there's the cremaster (which literally means suspender) muscle, responsible for the cremasteric reflex - which is the involuntary drawing up of the testicles high into the groin when it's cold, when you're frightened or when they're touched.
