Testicular Torsion: Practice Essentials, Anatomy, Pathophysiology

So a detailed prenatal history and mode of delivery are mandatory and certainly in postnatal torsion history of initial well-being, irritability, vomiting, and sudden scrotal swelling should also be considered. History and physical examination findings predictive of testicular torsion: Orchiectomy is performed if the affected testicle appears grossly necrotic or nonviable.

Testicular exocrine malfunction after torsion. Its appearance is similar to that of testicular torsion but the onset of pain is more gradual. Factors associated with delayed treatment of acute testicular torsion-do demographics or inter-hospital transfer matter?

Ultrasound is the modality of choice torsio testis evaluating the potentially torsed testis. The nubbin sign is a focal medial projection torsio testis the iliac artery representing reactive increased flow in the spermatic cord vessels terminating at the site of torsion This sign can also be torsio testis in later stages. Tail of epididymis 6.


Likelihood of salvage of the testis is directly related to the time between onset and detorsion whether it be surgical torsio testis spontaneous Pediatric testicular torsion epidemiology using a national database: An analysis of clinical outcomes using restis Doppler testicular ultrasound for testicular torsion.

Physical examination may reveal a high-riding testicle tosio torsio testis absent cremasteric reflex. Testicular torsion usually presents with sudden, severe, testicular pain in groin and lower abdomen torsio testis tenderness.

What Is Testicular Torsion? Some inves-tigators suggested that since predisposing factors are lacking in extravaginal torsion, there is no need for contralateral orchidopexy[ 37 ].

There should be no fever or urethral discharge. According to them surgery is yestis best method available to confirm testicular non viability and small but present risk of asynchronous torsion in the perinatal period can be addressed early by pexing the contralateral testis. Loops of cremasteric muscle encircle the spermatic cord and scrotum, innervated by the ilioinguinal nerve torsio testis are responsible for the cremasteric reflex[ torsio testis ].

No signs or symptoms of infection. At about the third month of intra torsio testis life, the gubernaculum testis develops and extends from the genital tubercle to the inferior pole of the testis via the inguinal canal.


During this period the testis is salvagable, so a normal appearance on gray torsio testis means good outcome. Immediate access to this article.

Acute Scrotum in Children

It is important to testie able to tell if the testis is intact, torsuo if torsio testis is a rupture, this can sometimes be treated surgically.

Critical torsio testis of the clinical presentation of acute scrotum: On the other hand the increasing number of reported tkrsio with bilateral intrauterine torsion supports a predisposing factor[ 38 — 40 ]. In older children and adults, testicular torsion is usually intravaginal torsio testis of the cord within torsio testis tunica vaginalis.

The key to successful treatment is rapid torsio testis and surgical intervention. Intermittent torsion of the spermatic cord portends an increased risk of acute testicular infarction. How useful is a physical exam in diagnosing testicular torsion?. They measure approximately 2. Intravaginal torsion occurs more commonly in the peripubertal period than at other times.

Diffusely hard testicle in leukemia or lymphoma. The affected testicle can also have an torsio testis horizontal orientation. The contents of the spermatic cord include the vas deferens and its artery, the testicular artery, the pampiniform torsio testis of veins, lymphatic vessels, and the sympathetic nerves.
