Adnexal torsion is a conditionwherein the ovary and/or the fallopian tube twist around their vascular pedicle, which may result in a venous/ arterial occlusion [1]. This condition accounts for 2.7% of all gynecologic surgical emergencies [1]. However, most studies involve case series that report the experience at a single institution [2]. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the incidence of adnexal torsion in South Korea from 2009 to 2011. Data were analyzed using Korean Health… Expand
Incidence of Adnexal Torsion in the Republic of Korea: A Nationwide Serial Cross-Sectional Study (2009–2018)
Background: This study aimed to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of adnexal torsion (AT) in the Korean population from 2009 to 2018 (10 years). Methods: We analyzed the 2009−2018 data obtainedExpand
Association between pregnancy and adnexal torsion
It is found that pregnancy is a negative risk factor for AT, and a further study is needed to elucidate the mechanisms underlying these results. Expand
Isolated fallopian tube torsion: an under-diagnosed entity with debatable management.
IFTT is probably underdiagnosed, its clinical presentation is more equivocal than adnexal torsion and ovaries are usually of normal size on ultrasonography, and Hydrosalpinx or para-ovarian cysts should raise suspicion towards IFTT. Expand
Can preoperative complete blood count parameters be used in the diagnosis of patients with adnexal torsion: a case-control study.
There was found to be a significant relationship between adnexal torsion and certain parameters of the complete blood count and low mean platelet volume could be considered a useful additional tool for the preoperative diagnosis. Expand
