A second operation was performed to undo the ligatures placed on the spermatic cords as follows: Dog 1(24hours), Dog 2 (72hours), Dog 3(96hours), and Dog 4 (120hours) and Dog 5 (144hours) to allow for reperfusion. A third operation was performed two weeks later to harvest the testicles together with their spermatic cords but noticed that all ligated testicles were complete necrotized and degenerated. Tissue necrosis was suggestive of severe ischaemia due to the fact that the scrotal sac and its contents are highly sensitive and respond to pain extremely fast. From our finding, it is realized that the resistibility of these organ to injury is very low and dies very fast when its vascular supply is interrupted.
