Background: Occasionally patients present with acute testicular pain having undergone a previous testicular fixation for torsion. The aim of this article is to review the literature and determine whether recurrent torsion of the testis is possible and whether the technique used at initial fixation is relevant. 
Testicular torsion after previous surgical fixation
TLDR
The case of a 13-year-old male with a previous history of left testicular torsion requiring left orchiectomy and right fixation that presented to the emergency room with testicularTorsion in the remaining testis is presented. Expand
[Recurrent testicular torsion: is retorsion of a fixed testis possible? A case report and literature review].
TLDR
The diagnostic work-up and management of acute testicular pain should not be different after previous fixation of the testis, regardless of age. Expand

TLDR
This work describes a simple and effective method using a four point fixation, which is likely to prevent testicular torsion recurrences. Expand
Testicular Torsion Postorchiopexy: A Case of Twisted Hammock.
TLDR
An unusual case of testicular torsion a decade after orchiopexy, where previously placed anchoring sutures in the inferior pole resulted in a "hammock" testicularTorsion, resulting in twisting of cord with involvement of the suture themselves. Expand
Managing testicular torsion – time is of the essence
TLDR
Some of the current controversies surrounding the management ofesticular torsion are explored, which can lead to testicular loss and need to be minimised. Expand
Surgical management of the acute paediatric scrotum: a three‐year single centre experience
TLDR
Acute scrotal pain is a common emergency presentation in paediatric surgery and testicular torsion is the most common cause for pain, with testicular TT being the sinister pathology to exclude. Expand
Testicular torsion: a 15‐year single‐centre clinical and histological analysis
TLDR
The demographic, epidemiological and clinical factors of boys seen at a single centre who underwent surgical exploration for testicular torsion were reviewed. Expand
Re‐presentations and recurrent events following initial management of the acute paediatric scrotum: a 5‐year review
TLDR
The aim of this study was to evaluate the re‐presentation to hospital in boys with previous acute scrotal pathology, reviewing contralateral symptoms, post‐operative complications, testicular torsion following fixation and failure of conservative management of testicular appendage (TA) torsions. Expand
Testicular fixation following torsion of the spermatic cord--does it guarantee prevention of recurrent torsion events?
TLDR
Recurrent torsion following previous testicular fixation may appear many years following the primary procedure, even in cases in which either polyglactin or polypropylene sutures have been applied, in accordance with the common practice used in the last 2 decades. Expand
Neonatal Testicular Torsion; a Review Article
TLDR
D diagnosis and controversies on management of testicular torsion are discussed in this review and general anesthesia is not a contraindication for exploration as thought before. Expand

Recurrent torsion of the testis following previous surgical fixation
TLDR
Two cases of recurrent torsion of the testis following previous surgical fixation are described and it is recommended that total excision of the parietal tunica vaginalis is used for surgical fixation. Expand
Spermatic cord torsion following previous surgical fixation.
TLDR
A diagnosis of torsion must be excluded in a patient who presents with a painful testis and who has had a previous fixation and the use of silk suture material in the fixation at the initial presentation is strongly recommended. Expand
Testicular torsion following orchiopexy.
TLDR
Thirteen reported patients with testicular torsion following orchiopexy are presented and discussed, and a literature review of all reported cases of recurrent testicularTorsion is performed. Expand
Torsion of the contralateral testis 5 years after orchiopexy.
TLDR
It is strongly recommended the use of a nonabsorbable reaction-producing suture when an orchiopexy is performed, with the point of fixation being between the visceral tunica vaginalis and the dartos muscle. Expand
Repeat torsion of "fixed" testis.
TLDR
Four cases of torsion of the spermatic cord are reported following previous fixation for the same condition, and in all cases the initial fixation was by absorbable chronic catgut suture, and the testes were found to be freely mobile. Expand
Eversion of the tunica vaginalis for prophylaxis of testicular torsion recurrences.
TLDR
The early and late results in 35 patients who underwent 46 eversion orchiopexies with a primary and definitive salvage rate of 87.5% and no case of recurrent testicular torsion are presented. Expand
Torsion of testicle following orchiopexy.
A patient with torsion of a previously operated testicle is reported, and techniques of prophylactic orchiopexy are discussed.
Testicular torsion after orchiopexy with nonabsorbable sutures.
TLDR
Testicular torsion occurring three years after bilateral orchiopexy is described, which was accomplished using 2-0 proline sutures and transseptal fixation of the contralateral testicle. Expand
The "window" orchidopexy for prevention of testicular torsion.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that this may be best accomplished by creating a window in the tunical vaginalis so that during healing a broad area of the tunica albuginea is held in apposition to a raw surface devoid of tunica vaginalis. Expand
Torsion of spermatic cord and testicular appendages.
TLDR
Those patients with spermatic cord torsion who were detorsed before twelve hours had elapsed had viable testes and patients with complaints of intermittent scrotal sweling and pain, with negative urinalysis, may be suffering from intermittent patients were treated in this manner. Expand
