Maintenance of testicular temperature below body temperature is essential for the process of spermatogenesis. This process of thermoregulation is mainly achieved by testicular veins through pampiniform venous plexus of the testis by absorbing the heat conveyed by the testicular arteries. However, this mechanism of thermoregulation may be hampered if an ...

Because infundibular widening most commonly appears at the origins of the posterior communicating artery and anterior choroidal artery from the internal carotid artery, its occurrence in association with the anterior communicating artery (ACoA) or the A1-A2 junction can be misinterpreted as an ACoA aneurysm on angiograms. The authors report on ...
