Testicular torsion is when the testicle twists upon itself cutting off the blood supply to the testicle. This can be extremely damaging if the blood supply is not corrected back to its normal anatomic function.
Once the testicle has twisted upon itself, if the blood supply is not restored within a certain period of time, known as a window of opportunity, the testicle will die. This is known as necrosis.
Once the testicle has died, it must be surgically removed.
There are a number of different diagnostic tests that doctors use to determine whether there is sufficient blood flow from the body into the testicle. They use color Doppler flow and computerized imaging to determine if there is blood flow.
