About Varicocele

When the veins in the scrotum enlarge, the condition is known as Varicocele. Varicocele affects sperm production and function that can potentially reduce fertility. Out of a hundred males, ten to fifteen have varicocele. Varicoceles are found to be more common on the left side of the scrotum as the male anatomy is not the same on both sides.

More Questions

Procedures of varicocele treatment in Mumbai provided at Pristyn Care

  • Percutaneous Varicocele Embolization: This is a minimally-invasive procedure that involves the injecting of a small catheter through the groin into the scrotal vein. After the catheter is injected, a coil is inserted through the catheter into the varicocele in order to block the affected vein. This helps in redirecting the blood flow through the healthier veins which results in the collapsing of the damaged veins.
  • Laparoscopic Varicocelectomy: Performed under the influence of general anesthesia. This is the most advanced and effective method to treat varicoceles. During this procedure, the surgeon makes several small incisions around the abdomen. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon inserts a thin, lighted scope (laparoscope) through one of the incisions. Then, the abdomen is inflated using CO2 gas, which allows the doctor to have a distinct view of the internal structures. As soon as the enlarged veins are located and identified, the surgeon will cut them apart before closing off the ends. Once the procedure is complete, all the medical tools are removed before closing the incisions with sutures or clips.
  • Microscopic Varicocelectomy: Usually performed if there is a risk of infertility. The surgeon in this procedure makes a tiny incision above the scrotum and separates the testicular arteries and vas deferens in the scrotum. With the help of a microscope, the surgeon then dissects further down to the spermatic cord, keeping the lymphatic drainage intact. Once the abnormal veins are identified, each vein is meticulously dissected circumferentially and tied off to disrupt the flow. The doctor then drains the blood away from the testicle into the inner thigh and pelvis.
