Abstract

Aim: Children who have suffered from ovarian torsion may be at increased risk for a repeat event, and after unilateral ovarian loss, the contralateral ovary is at risk for future torsion. Oophoropexy has not been emphasized enough in the literature. We present our experiences with oophoropexy in children.
