Table 3 reports data on the practice of fixing the explored testis in case of negative scrotal exploration
Accurate characterization of this entity may allow a more conservative scrotal exploration
rather than a radical orchiectomy.

 Ultrasonography: Large Scrotal exploration

for unilateral nonpalpable testis.
A 2015 study found that the risk of chronic orchalgia in children who underwent scrotal exploration
for acute scrotal pain occurs in 1.4% of cases (Hart et al., 2015).
Furthermore, exact de-torsion of the cord was confirmed during scrotal exploration
The diagnosis was not determined in only one case; thus, scrotal exploration
was finally performed and an intact testiculus was observed.
Immediate or late scrotal exploration
may be performed with or without orchiectomy.
Unfortunately, these symptoms overlap with other conditions including acute epididymo-orchitis, and quite often it is scrotal exploration
that confirms the diagnosis.
One 12-year-old patient, who had scrotal exploration
via an inguinal approach, had no block to ice assessed 60 minutes post-injection of 10 ml 0.5% levobupivacaine (0.24 ml/kg).
Additional diagnostic studies that are discussed include bone densitometry, pituitary imaging, genetic studies, testicular biopsy, and scrotal exploration
