A total of 31 patients with acute torsion treated over a fifteen-year period are reviewed. The peak incidence of the disease, its seasonal variations, predisposing factors, surgical procedure, and clinical outcome are analyzed. Most of the patients were operated upon via an inguinal incision and underwent detorsion and fixation or untwisting only of the involved testis. The contralateral one was never anchored. All patients were asked to complete a questionnaire, with 2 of 3 responding from one to fifteen years (mean, 6.7 years) after surgery. None underwent recurrent surgery on either testicle. We conclude that fixation of the testes, both detorsioned and normal is not necessary.
