Testicular Torsion Symptoms, Causes, And Treatment In Lahore
Each testicle is associated with the scrotum and spermatic cord. Testicular torsion happens if the testicle rotates on the cord that runs upward from the testicle into the abdomen. The rotation reduces blood flow and twists the spermatic cord. If the testicle revolves several times, blood flow can be entirely blocked, causing more damage quicker. Males who suffer from testicular torsion may have a hereditary trait that permits one or both testicles to rotate freely intimate the scrotum. The testicle is only attached to the spermatic cord, and not to the scrotum. This is named as bell clapper scrotum because of the testicle swings like a bell clapper. The testicular torsion can occur at any time, while sleeping, exercising, standing or sitting but don’t appear trigger who are already susceptible. In many cases, it is increased by an injury or damage due to the rapid increase in growth in the early stages of puberty.

Factors Affecting Testicular Torsion
Factors that increase the chance of testicular torsion are:
Previous Testicular Torsion: If the torsion happens once and recover without treatment, it has just happened again in both testicles or either testicle, unless the surgery is needed to correct the underlying problems.
Age: Torsion of Testes is most common at the age of 10-25 years in the males. It can also occur at any time till 30 years of the age. About 65% of the cases occur at the age of 12-18 years and around ¼ males affected by this condition.
Climate: Testicular Torsion is also known as Winter Syndrome because this condition is more common in winter. The scrotum of the male is relaxed when he is lying in a warm bed. Whenever he leaves the bed, the scrotum is exposed to colder air. If the sperm cord is twisted when the scrotum is loose. The sudden contraction results after the abrupt temperature changes that trap the testicular position.

Diagnosing Testicular Torsion
Torsion of Testes is usually an emergency. Diagnosis and treatment must be fast. The doctor will examine the abdomen, testicles, scrotum, and groin that will ask about symptoms to find the problem is the testicular torsion or maybe other condition.
Treatment Of Testicular Torsion
Torsion of Testes generally requires emergency surgery. If treated within 4-6 hours, the testicle can usually be protected, but waiting longer can cause permanent injury and may affect the ability to father children.
The operation is simple and minimally aggressive. It is normally conducted under common anesthesia, and it does not usually need a stay in the hospital.
During surgery, the doctor will:
- Untwist the spermatic cord, if necessary
- Stitch one or both testicles to the inside of the scrotum, to prevent rotation
- Make a cut in the scrotum
- Suturing both testicles will prevent torsion from occurring on the other side.
