Question by a patient: Does Vasectomy increase the risk of torsion of the testicle?
Dr Kittels response to the patient asking about increasing risk of testicular torsion after vasectomy.
Thank you for your feedback and your interesting question about testicular rotation, which has not been asked before, so I thought it is worth dropping you a line. I can see the logic of your argument. But while there was one study possibly confirming increased rotational mobility of the testicle after vasectomy https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19022992/ there has been so far no evidence to show increased torsion.
