Torsion testiculaire: une urgence piège

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2011, vol. 7, no. 320, p. 2404,2406-8
Abstract In common urological practice, testicular torsion is one of the most serious emergencies. Consequences can be devastating for the patient, both physically and psychologically. The primary care physician should be able to quickly identify the pathology and refer immediately the patient to a center with surgical facilities. Rapid diagnosis provides the best chances to save the patient's testicle, which may suffer irreversible damage as soon as 6 hours after the onset of the symptoms. History and clinical examination remain the cornerstones of the diagnosis, and are often sufficient to select patients who need surgical exploration. If time allows it, Doppler Ultrasound can often help distinguish torsion from other scrotal conditions, but cannot be considered as a 100% diagnostic tool.
