In this multicenter study of 1783 children diagnosed with ovarian torsion from 2012 to 2017, 402 children (22.5%) underwent oophorectomy. The odds of oophorectomy were higher in children under 11 years of age, children with public insurance, and children with complex chronic conditions. Future efforts should target a preservation-first approach.
