Limited data exist on the Recurrence of adnexal torsion (rAT). Normal and small appearing ovaries are found to have an increased risk for rAT. However, updated data of larger cohorts are scarce. A recent study investigated the predictors for rAT in women with a history of surgical intervention for primary adnexal torsion (pAT).
Women with a primary occurrence of surgically proven adnexal torsion were included in the study. Comparison between those who had experienced rAT was done with those who had not. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to analyze independent predictors for rAT.
The results were described as follows-
Adolescents and pediatric females and women with smaller ovarian cysts at pAT possess a higher risk for future recurrence of adnexal torsion.
