Purpose: Testicular torsion (TT) is a urologic emergency and to make an instant decision about the fate of the torsioned testis based just on the macroscopic features is a dilemma. A quantitative method to evaluate the viability is needed. Since ischemia results in acidosis, pHs of testes might provide objective information about viability. The present study aimed to assess the relationship between tissue pH, histopathologic and biochemical changes in a rat model of TT via a pH sensor.
