Clinical Trial Summary

The investigators propose to examine the effect of local cooling of testis in participants with acute epididymitis or orchiepididymitis on participants reported pain level and analgetics consumption.


Clinical Trial Description

Epididymitis or orchiepididymitis is an acute disease causing pain and discomfort.

our hypothesis is that local cooling of the affected testis or epididymis may relieve the pain and reduce the analgetics consumption In order to examine this hypothesis we will recruit adult patients with epididymitis or orchiepididymitis and will randomize these patients to two arms.

One arm will receive every 8 hours a brick cooled for at least 2 hours in -20(celsius) for local use on the affected hemiscrotum, while the second arm will receive a brick in room temperature.

Pain level will be estimated one hour following the application of the brick using visual analogue pain score. Patient will receive analgetics according to a predefined escalating protocol.

Pain level and analgetics consumption will be compared between the two arms. ;
