Endoscopic treatment of varicocele

Endoscopic treatment of varicocele

Archivos Espanoles de Urologia 41(1): 15-16

A new approach to the treatment of varicocele is described. This consists of introducing a laparoscope through the umbilicus and advancing it towards the deep inguinal orifice where the spermatic veins are identified. Applying traction to the testicle and keeping the veins taut, facilitate identification. Thereafter these are dissected with the grasping forceps and coagulated with the endothermy scissors. This technique involving minimal trauma attempts to resolve a condition that has up until now required a laparotomy procedure.
