Abstract

Background Testicular torsion is a common problem and, to date, there is no agent to preserve testicular function following detorsion. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), with its rich growth factor composition, has proven beneficial in regenerative therapy. It is believed that PRP has not been studied in testis for ischemia/ reperfusion (I/R) injury.
