Results:The characteristics of sonography of testis torsion were as follows:①The position changes of testis and epididymis in scrotum. ②The clear reduction or disappearing of blood supply in testis. ③The whole enlargements of testis and epididymis.
Testicular torsion is described as the twisting of the spermatic cord resulting in acute pain and ischemia.
Physical examination techniques such as scrotal elevation can be helpful in differentiating between epididymitis and testicular torsion, but emergent imaging with Doppler ultrasound seems to be the most helpful in confirming the diagnosis.
Protective effects of ibuprofen on testicular torsion/detorsion-induced ischemia/reperfusion injury in rats
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effect of ibuprofen on testicular torsion/detorsion-induced ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury.
Testicular torsion was created by rotating the right testis 720° in a clockwise direction.
Irreducible inguinal hernia, bowel obstruction, and torsion of testis in a patient with testicular feminization syndrome
Although acute scrotum is commonly attributed to torsion of testis or its appendage, epididymo-orchitis and incarcerated hernia, following appendicitis scrotal and/or inguinal abscess should be considered.
Torsion of the testis impedes blood flow, whereas it is enhanced or normal in inflammatory pathology.
The aim of this study was to demonstrate the ultrasonographic features of prenatal torsion of the testis at presentation and during follow-up, with histological correlation post-orchidectomy.
Between January 1985 and December 1999, 13 neonates with antenatal torsion of the testis were examined postnatally, at presentation and during follow-up, with high-resolution ultrasonography, including colour Doppler ultrasonography.
Remnants of testicular tissue at the end of a diminutive spermatic cord are the end result of testicular infarction from torsion of the testis or spermatic cord, occurring either in utero or unrecognized in the neonatal period.
Torsion of a testicular appendage (58%) was most frequent at 11 years of age, 2 years before the maximum incidence of torsion of the testis (29%) at 13 years.
