Abstract

Objective: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is known to cause significant deterioration in the function of the testicles and sexual dysfunction in male patients who undergo hemodialysis. The aim of this study was to show the changes in the testicles that occur as a result of hypogonadism secondary to CKD and to analyze the elasticity of the parenchyma by shear wave sonoelastography.
