The main goal in the treatment of orchitis is the elimination of the inflammatory process and restoration of the functional capabilities of the damaged organ. The methods of therapy depend on the stage of the disease and its nature. In most cases, patients are prescribed medication, which consists of several stages:

  1. Elimination of the cause of inflammation. Most often, orchitis develops due to the action of pathogens. For their destruction, antibacterial preparations of a wide spectrum of action are used. The choice of an effective antibiotic is carried out on the basis of microbiological studies. For treatment use drugs from the group of macrolides, penicillins, as well as cephalosporins, tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones and others.
  2. Influence on the mechanism of inflammation. To combat inflammatory processes that destroy the structure of the body used anti-inflammatory drugs and NSAIDs.
  3. Symptomatic therapy. The defeat of the testicles is accompanied by acute painful sensations. For their relief, analgesic agents are used, and in especially severe cases a novocaine blockade is performed.
  4. Auxiliary treatment methods. To reduce the inflammatory process, restrict the spread of infection and activate local immunity, physiotherapy procedures are used. Most often, patients are prescribed electrotherapy, reflexology, mineral and mud baths, therapeutic exercise.

In addition to the above treatment methods, special attention should be paid to creating favorable conditions for a speedy recovery. Patients are shown bed rest and minimum movements in the scrotum area. To do this, use a suspension, that is, a special supporting bandage, which improves blood circulation.

Vitamins

The organic components necessary for the normal functioning and development of any living organism are vitamins. With orchitis, a man is prescribed drugs that help strengthen the immune system for a speedy recovery.

The main vitamins for men:

  • A - retinol is a vitamin of growth, it synthesizes proteins and fats. Promotes the development of sex hormones and maintains immunity. Increases potency, improves the production of testosterone, reduces the risk of developing malignant neoplasms. Contained in chicken and beef liver, red fruits, fish oil, olive oil, chicken and quail eggs, pumpkin, carrots.
  • B - vitamins of this group do not directly affect the organs of the genitourinary system, but improve the general condition of the body, which speeds up the recovery process. Restore the energy balance and stimulate the central nervous system. Promote better absorption of proteins and amino acids. With a deficiency of group B, there is increased irritability, sleep disorders, depressive conditions. There are vitamins in cheese, peanuts, tuna, salmon, oysters, beans and potatoes.
  • C - supports the immune system, normalizes blood pressure and lowers cholesterol. Ascorbic acid is responsible for the viability of spermatozoa, increasing the chances of conception. Contained in citrus, dog rose, sweet pepper, black currant.
  • D - eliminates erectile dysfunction, takes part in the functioning of the urogenital system. Contained in sea and river fish, eggs, dairy products, and also produced by the body when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.
  • E - improves the condition of blood vessels, reduces the risk of weakening potency and prevents infertility. The deficiency of tocopherol negatively affects the sperm state. Contained in vegetable oil, dairy products, sprouted grains, asparagus, chicken and quail eggs.
  • Folic acid (B9) - promotes the recovery of cells and strengthens the walls of blood vessels. Deficiency of the substance adversely affects the condition of the central nervous system and potency. It is found in beef and fresh herbs.
  • L-carnitine - takes part in the formation of male potency. With its lack, the quality of the ejaculate worsens and the risk of erectile dysfunction increases. L-carnitine is found in red meat and dairy products, liver.
  • Zinc - improves the production of the main male hormone - testosterone. With a deficiency of zinc, a poor production of sperth occurs and the level of libido decreases. The substance is in buckwheat, red meat, carrots, seeds and nuts, black bread.

To supply the body with the above components, you should balance the diet. You can also buy in the pharmacy already ready multivitamin complexes: Duovit, Velmen, Alphabet, Farmamed and others.

Physiotherapeutic treatment

After acute inflammatory processes in the scrotum subsided, patients are prescribed physiotherapeutic treatment. Physioprocedures are especially effective in chronic forms of orchitis, as they possess the following properties:

  • Eliminate stagnant processes.
  • Improve blood flow in the testicles and pelvic organs.
  • Stop the spread of infection.
  • Increase local immunity.
  • Reduce pain.
  • Accelerate the recovery process.

Let's consider the basic medical methods used for orchitis:

  1. Magnetotherapy - on affected tissues are affected by an alternating magnetic field. Due to this, the vascular tone is normalized, tissue resistance is increased and microcirculation of blood is improved. This method has a pronounced analgesic effect and creates all the conditions for activating local immune defense.
  2. Ultrasound - increases local tissue permeability, improving the penetration of tissue medications with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
  3. Laser therapy - has analgesic and stimulating effect. Activates chemical reactions that increase the level of tissue metabolism.
  4. Endouretral laser therapy with helium-neon laser - reduces pain in the groin and scrotum, improves blood flow.
  5. Infrared radiation - promotes the expansion of the vessels of irradiated organs and tissues. It improves metabolic processes, reduces discomfort, reduces muscle spasms.
  6. Ultraviolet irradiation - increases the defenses of the body, accelerates the healing process. Normalizes blood circulation in the organs of the small pelvis, resolves the foci of inflammation.

In addition to the above physiotherapy methods, reflexotherapy (impact on biological points), electrotherapy (accelerates regenerative processes), as well as mud and mineral baths can be prescribed for treatment. In addition to physiotherapy, the patient is prescribed a diet rich in vitamins and minerals that enhance the protective properties of the immune system.

Surgery

In the absence of the effect of conservative therapy, as well as in severe orchitis, patients are prescribed surgical treatment.

The main indications for the operation:

  • Lesion of the testicle as a result of trauma.
  • Suppuration of the body: abscess, microabscesses.
  • Severe course of the disease with acute painful symptoms.
  • Seals in the scrotum that do not dissolve on their own.
  • Orchitis of tuberculous origin.
  • Chronic inflammation with frequent exacerbations.
  • Ineffective treatment of acute illness after 36 hours from admission to hospital.

Surgical techniques used in orchitis:

  1. Puncture of the scrotum - is carried out with both therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. The operation is performed under local anesthesia with a special puncture needle. It avoids unjustified resection or orchiectomy, reduces the intensity of the pain syndrome, reduces pressure in the scrotum. Puncture is not performed with a large infectious process.
  2. Resection is a minor trauma surgery with the removal of a part of the organ. Produced under local anesthesia and involves wedge-shaped removal of the affected tissue. It allows to preserve the functional abilities of the testicle, but there is a risk of complications of the operated organ.
  3. Orchiectomy - an operation to remove the testicle along with its appendage. It is carried out with purulent processes, abscess, spread of infection to other organs and tissues. Passes under local anesthesia - infiltrative and conductive anesthesia. The surgeon cuts the front surface of the scrotum and removes the organ. If bilateral removal is performed, it leads to irreversible male infertility and decreased production of sex hormones.
  4. The method of notching - allows timely detection of purulent foci and performing decompression of the organ. On the surface of the testicle, small incisions of not more than 5 mm deep are applied. It is often used in diagnostic, not therapeutic purposes.

The method of surgical treatment depends on the severity of the pathological process, the presence of complications and the age of the patient.

It is important to know!

Epididymitis - a disease that is characterized by inflammation of the epididymis and is manifested by pain in the testicle. Orchitis is an inflammation of the testis. Orhoepididymitis - a combination of the inflammatory process in the testicle and epididymis. Read more..
