Testicular torsion is a highly time-sensitive event for a patient and the survival of his testicle, and therapeutic nihilism about testicle survival after six to eight hours is widespread, resulting in unnecessary orchiectomies, Dr. Mellick says. Some torsed testicles are salvageable even at 24 hours, sometimes longer, but the clock is ticking the minute the retracting cremasteric muscle starts the spermatic cord twisting. Does that mean an immediate attempt at manual detorsion should become a standard of care? Dr. Mellick explains in this month’s video and blog. Read more at http://bit.ly/Mellick.
