TORSION TESTICULAIRE PDF

The hemiscrotum may be swollen or erythematous. The onset of severe testicular pain is sudden and is not relieved by elevation of the scrotum 3. There should be no fever or urethral discharge. It is important to recognize that some patients may present with intermittent symptoms due to spontaneous detorsion, so-called intermittent testicular torsion. This subentity has been increasingly reported in the literature. Short periods of acute groin pain accompanied by vomiting and subsequent spontaneous relief may be typical patient history in these cases

The hemiscrotum may be swollen or erythematous. The onset of severe testicular pain is sudden and is not relieved by elevation of the scrotum 3. There should be no fever or urethral discharge. It is important to recognize that some patients may present with intermittent symptoms due to spontaneous detorsion, so-called intermittent testicular torsion.

This subentity has been increasingly reported in the literature. Short periods of acute groin pain accompanied by vomiting and subsequent spontaneous relief may be typical patient history in these cases Physical examination may reveal elevation of the affected testicle, an absence of the cremasteric reflex , transverse position of the testicle, anterior rotation of epididymis, and pain relief with successful manual detorsion.

Pathology In the neonatal form of torsion extravaginal or supravaginal the whole content of the hemiscrotum rotates around the spermatic cord at the level of the external inguinal ring 2,3. In adolescents or young adults the more common torsion in intravaginal.

The most common underlying abnormality is the so-called bell clapper deformity which allows the testis and attached epididymis extensive mobility, and thus places it at risk of twisting around the spermatic cord. Initially, torsion is sufficient only to obstruct venous outflow incomplete torsion, less than degrees , resulting in the gradual increase in intratesticular pressure and resistance.

Over time and with an additional twisting of the cord greater than degrees , the arterial inflow is also obstructed, and the testis becomes entirely ischemic Radiographic features Ultrasound Ultrasound is the modality of choice for evaluating the potentially torted testis.

It is simultaneously able to assess the structure of the testis as well as the vascularity, all without subjecting the gametes to ionizing radiation. The most important part of the examination is the comparison to the normal side see testicular ultrasound technique.

Torsion du testicule

Mild warmth and redness of the overlying area may be present. Elevation of the testicle may worsen the pain. The cremasteric reflex , which normally causes elevation of the testicle by stroking the inner thigh, may be absent, [1] especially in children. Children with testicular torsion may awaken with testicular or abdominal pain in the middle of the night or in the morning.

La torsion du testicule : causes, symptĂ´mes et traitement

When to see a doctor Seek emergency care for sudden or severe testicle pain. Prompt treatment can prevent severe damage or loss of your testicle if you have testicular torsion. This can occur when a testicle twists and then untwists on its own intermittent torsion and detorsion. Surgery is frequently needed to prevent the problem from happening again. Request an Appointment at Mayo Clinic Causes Testicular torsion occurs when the testicle rotates on the spermatic cord, which brings blood to the testicle from the abdomen. If the testicle rotates several times, blood flow to it can be entirely blocked, causing damage more quickly. Most males who get testicular torsion have an inherited trait that allows the testicle to rotate freely inside the scrotum.
