Pediatric Ovarian Torsion – PediaCast CME 027

Show Notes / Continuing Medical Education Information

DESCRIPTION
Dr Geri Hewitt joins Dr Mike in the PediaCast Studio for a discussion on ovarian/adnexal torsion in the pediatric and adolescent population. Torsion can occur at any age, but is most common between 9 and 14 years. Presentation can be variable and laboratory and imaging studies nonspecific. Clinical suspicion is paramount for rapid diagnosis and surgical intervention, which is necessary to preserve ovarian function. We hope you can join us for this important conversation!
