The objective of the research was to analyze personal experience and world literature on the diagnosis and treatment of boys with testicular torsion and to improve the process of providing specialized care.
Materials and methods. The study included 141 boys with testicular torsion. 133 patients underwent emergency surgery, 8 patients underwent manual detorsion.
Results. Treatment was successful in 88 patients; in 53 cases, orchiectomy was performed.
Conclusion. Personal observations and the analysis of the literature on testicular torsion in boys indicate the need for early diagnosis and immediate surgery.
