Background:We investigated the hypothesis that the transcutaneous electro-orchidogram (EOG) can act as a diagnostic tool in testicular pathological conditions.
Material/Methods:Three electrodes were applied to the scrotal skin of 21 healthy volunteers (controls), 12 patients with acute epididymo-orchitis (EO), 8 with testicular torsion (TT), 10 with unilateral undescended testicle (UT), and 9 with testicular seminoma (TS). Recordings were performed before and 48 hours and 1, 3, and 6 months after treatment. Semen analysis was done 1, 3, and 6 months post-treatment.
Results:Recordings from healthy volunteers showed slow waves (SWs) with similar wave variables from the three electrodes of the same individual. Patients with EO exhibited increased SW variables (p
