Clinical Safety Recommendations for Testicular Torsion: Analysis of 101 Claims Settled with Compensation in Spain and France

Introduction: The investigation sought to evaluate testicular torsion claims that it settled with compensation to have results available as the basis for making suggestions to reduce clinical risk and avoid claims. Methods: Data were reviewed from personal majority policy and from Catalonia's public sector, as well as data from the leading medical civil liability insurance company at healthcare centers in France from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2018. Proper medical care and defending future claims are both necessary for receiving safe medical treatment and defending potential allegations. Properly filling out the emergency report and the remainder of medical information are vital for providing appropriate medical care and defending suspected claims.

Validation of TWIST score in the diagnosis of testicular torsion in children: A Prospective study

This report is meant to establish the diagnostic value of the u201cTesticular Workup for Ischemia and Suspected Torsion " score for assessing acute scrotum in children. Patients from 1 month old to 16 years old were admitted to Children's hospital No. 1 with acute scrotum from June 1 st, 2020, and May 31 st, 2021, respectively. All patients were given Scrotal Doppler Ultrasound after that. In diagnosing Testicular torsion in Children, the ROC curve was used to find out the most effective cut-off in diagnosing Testicular torsion. Result: Among 68 children with acute scrotum, 16 percent of 68 cases had TT. The median age of the TT group was 12. 5 years in the TT group and 9 years in the non-TT group was 9 years. None of the 32 patients with the TWIST score u22642 2 had TT and among 20 patients with a score of 3 u2013 4 or more had TT, only one had TT. Conclusions: The TWIST scoring system has high sensitivity and specificity values, which makes it ideal for scoring tasks.

The diagnostic value of ultrasound in pediatric testicular torsion with preserved flow

Background: The diminution of blood supply to the testis has resulted in a testis' reduced after spermatic cord torsion. Despite persistent symptoms on the affected side, patients' diagnosis of testicular torsion is vague and difficult due to the fact that ultrasound blood flow measurements have not significantly reduced in comparison to unaffected, healthy testis. In pediatric testicular torsion, high-resolution ultrasonography using the preserved flow technique to improve diagnostic accuracy. In four cases, preoperative ultrasound revealed spermatic cord distortion in all cases, as well as testicular long axis tilting in four cases. In some testicular torsion cases, Color Doppler may have normal or elevated blood flow levels in the testis.

Where are the paediatric patients with testicular torsion during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Methods A retrospective review of theatre logbooks was conducted to determine how many emergency urological procedures were performed between 1 March 2020 and 31 May 2020, compared to the corresponding 3-month period in 2019. In particular, similar patient case numbers have been found in both scrotal investigation and ureteric stone surgeries. However, orchidectomies of testicular cancers were down by 63%. Conclusions Although patients with ureteric colic persist to live, those with acute testis pain requiring investigation became less frequent, contributing to the possibility of undiagnosed testicular torsion in the community.

Reassessment of a Decade of Experience on Testicular Torsion: Are We Making a Mistake?

Testicular torsion is a common medical emergency among children. For preventing testicular loss, Pro Protett recognition and exclusion of other acute scrotal causes are vital. Material and Method: The retrospective review of patient records of testicular torsion in the last decade was reviewed retrospectively. In 96 patients, with false-negative results in 26 out of 96, with false-negative findings in 26. Testicular atrophy occurred in 65 patients, of whom 6 died after testicular atrophy. Orchiectomy and histologic reevaluation were performed by orchiectomy and histologic reevaluation, and grading of the specimens revealed a 4-low-grade injury, which suggests a likelihood of reversible injury. In surgery, seventeen patients had normal testicular anatomy. Conclusion: Even with a normal flow Doppler ultrasound, surgical exploration is required in the event of clinical concern for testicular torsion. After testicular torsion, further research is required to determine the true risk of contralateral autoimmune disease and increase the rate testicular salvageability.
