Kochakam W Mail, Choonhaklai V , Hotrapawanond P , Muangman V

We retrospectively reviewed 36 patients who were treated in our institutes with traumatic
testicular dislocation from 1975 to 1997. The mean patient age was 25 years old (18-38). Average
time to present at the emergency room was 1 hour (0.5-6). Bilateral dislocation was found in
thirty cases and unilateral dislocation was found in six cases. The sites of dislocation included:
34 cases (64 testes) at superficial inguinal area, one case (one testis) at acetabular area, and one
case (one testis) at the perineal area. Closed reduction under general anesthesia was successful in
14 cases, open reduction after failed closed reduction in 10 cases, open exploration and repaired
testis with reposition in II cases and orchiectomy only in one case. The overall results after
treatment showed the normal size and position of the testis.
