Testicular Atrophy Syndrome

Specialty:

Urology

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

A testis may rarely atrophy following hernia surgery. This occurs when there is thrombosis of the testicular veins, resulting in intense venous congestion followed by ischemic orchitis. Relatively minor trauma to the venous plexus is sufficient to initiate the process, and avoidance of certain precipitating conditions can greatly reduce the occurrence of this complication.
