Partial orchiectomy radical orchiectomy for pediatric testis tumors.

Transl Androl Urol 2020 Oct;9(5):2400-2407

Department of Urology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA.

While radical orchiectomy remains the gold standard for testicular cancer, partial orchiectomy has become a well-accepted organ-sparing approach for benign testicular tumors in pre-pubertal patients. The aims of testicular-sparing surgery include prevention of over-treatment, preservation of future hormonal and reproductive function, and provision of a durable cure. For pre-pubertal patients, who have a high likelihood of benign lesions, partial orchiectomy provides effective treatment, owing to the high reliability of scrotal ultrasound (US) and intraoperative frozen section.

Real-World Application of Pre-Orchiectomy miR-371a-3p Test in Testicular Germ Cell Tumor Management.

J Urol 2021 Jan 28;205(1):137-144. Epub 2020 Aug 28.

Department of Urology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

Purpose: Current serum tumor markers for testicular germ cell tumor are limited by low sensitivity. Growing evidence supports the use of circulating miR-371a-3p as a superior marker for malignant (viable) germ cell tumor management. We evaluated the real-world application of serum miR-371a-3p levels in detecting viable germ cell tumor among patients undergoing partial or radical orchiectomy. Read More

Successful treatment of metachronous contralateral intratubular germ cell neoplasia with partial orchiectomy and low-dose radiation in a patient previously treated for testicular carcinoma.

Pediatr Blood Cancer 2019 10 9;66(10):e27872. Epub 2019 Jun 9.

Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

Intratubular germ cell neoplasia (ITGCN) of the testis is a precursor to testicular germ cell tumor (TGCT), which can lead to the development of invasive cancer. In patients with a history of previously treated unilateral TGCT, treatment for ITGCN of the contralateral testis needs to be balanced with the risks of subsequent infertility. Here, we present a 17- year- old patient with ITGCN diagnosed after treatment of contralateral nonseminomatous TGCT who was successfully treated with a partial orchiectomy followed by low-dose radiation with preservation of his testosterone production.

Testicular cavernous hemangioma associated with testicular torsion - case report and review of literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 27;49:247-250. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Surgery, General Hospital, Klagenfurt, Austria. Electronic address:

Introduction: Testicular neoplasms that are derived from connective tissue, blood vessels and musculature are uncommon and intra-testicular tumors of vascular origin are extremely rare; both are benign in nature. Testicular hemangioma is exceedingly rare and typically occurs in patients younger than 20 years, the age in which a primary germ cell tumor of the testis may present, necessitating a radical approach to management with orchidectomy, although potential conservative focal partial surgical excision is desirable. Hemangiomas of the testis have a similar sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging appearance to that of malignant tumors of the testis, especially seminoma. Read More
