Introduction

Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency. Its presentation is often classically described by the sudden onset of unilateral scrotal pain in an adolescent boy that is accompanied by exam findings of a high riding testis on the affected side and loss of the cremasteric reflex. Not all episodes present as such and management may appear straight forward until one encounters a questionably viable testicle during an operation for detorsion. In this module, background information of testicular torsion will be presented as well as its evaluation, operative decision making and postoperative management.
