What does the male reproductive system consist of: REWRITE

- Two testes suspended in the scrotum
- xtratesticular genital ducts

1

Which glands are associated with the male productive tract?

- The paired seminal vesicles
- The single prostate gland
- Two Bulbourethral glands (Of Cowper)

2

What does the glands associated with the male reproductive system form?

They form the noncellular portion of semen, which not only nourishes

3

Tunica albuginea

A capsule of dense, irregular, collagenous connective tissue that surrounds each testis

4

Tunica vascukolosa

- Is beneath the tunica albuginea
- Highly vascularized loose connective tissue

5

What is responisble for the synthesis of the testosterone?

Interstitial cells (of Leydig)

6

Where is spermatoza produced?

It is produced by the semiinferous epithelium of the semiferous tubules

7

What connects the seminiferous tubule to the rete testis?

Tubuli recti

8

How does the spermatoza leave the rete testis?

The spermatoza leave the rete testis through the ductuli efferentes, which eventually fuse with the epididymis.

9

Vascular supply for each testis

testicular artery

10

The testicular artery accompanies....

Ductus deferens (vas deferens)

11

What is the veins that tehe capillary beds are collected into called?

Pampiniform plexus of veins, which are wrapped around each testicular artery

12

Spermatic cord =

The arteries + veins + ductus deferens

13

What does the spermatic cord pass through?

The spermatic cord passes through the inguinal canal, which is the passageway from the abdominal cavity to the scrotum

14

Countercurrent heat exchange system

Keeps the temperature of the testes lower than the rest of the body (35C)
