Microsurgical Varicocele Repair on Men with Grade III Lesions and Chronic Dull Scrotal Pain: A Pilot Study

Microsurgical Varicocele Repair on Men with Grade III Lesions and Chronic Dull Scrotal Pain: A Pilot Study

Current Urology 8(1): 29-31

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of microsurgical varicocele repair in patients with grade III lesions and chronic dull scrotal pain. The study was based on 8 patients with grade III left-sided varicocele and chronic dull scrotal pain for whom a microsurgical subinguinal varicocele repair was performed. The 1-year follow-up included pain assessment and scrotal examination. Of the 8 patients, 7 (88%) reported complete resolution of pain with no palpable varicocele on scrotal examination. No cases of testicular atrophy or hydrocele formation were reported. These results indicated that microsurgical varicocele repair may benefit patients with grade III lesions and chronic dull scrotal pain.
