Testicular torsion is an acute vascular event in which the spermatic cord becomes twisted on its axis, such that the blood flowings to and/or from the testicle becomes impeded. This results in ischemic injury and infarction. Testicular torsion in adulthood is relatively unusual and has a higher morbidity rate. Any delay in the diagnosis can lead to the loss of the spermatogenic function of the testis and an increased risk of orchidectomy. Closed reduction is the initial treatment of choice. Open surgical reduction is recommended for possible testicular torsion or rupture.
