Varicocele is a varicose veins of the spermatic cord. As a result of insufficiency of the valve apparatus of the veins and an increase in intra-abdominal pressure, the veins of the spermatic cord expand and the outflow of blood from the scrotum is disturbed. Varicocele is often found in the diagnosis of male infertility, as a violation of the blood supply to the testicles disrupts the formation of healthy sperm. The cause of 40% of cases of male infertility is precisely in varicocele. The expansion of the veins of the scrotum disrupts the process of spermatogenesis.
Varicocele is an enlargement of the veins of the spermatic cord and testicle, causing impaired blood flow. The prevalence of the disease among young men is 10-15%. This disease occurs in 30-40% of men with primary infertility (who have never had offspring before), and in 80% of men with secondary infertility (who have not suffered from infertility in the past). Symptoms of varicocele: pain in the scrotum; violation of the process of sperm formation; decrease (atrophy) of the testicle and impaired production of the male sex hormone by the testes - testosterone. The diagnosis of varicocele is established as a result of a routine examination, often in young people before conscription into the army, or by examining men for infertility. Sometimes the only sign of varicocele is pain in the testicle that appears with prolonged standing.
The goal of treatment is to stop the impaired circulation in the testicular vein by bandaging or blocking it. There are various operating techniques: open surgery (with dissection of the muscles of the abdominal wall); laparoscopic and blockage of testicular veins with a catheter. The methods differ from each other in results, recovery process and the likelihood of complications.
Microsurgery is a type of open surgery. Using a high-resolution microscope allows you to enlarge the picture of the operating field. Thanks to the laparoscope, there is no need to dissect the muscles of the abdominal wall; only a small incision is made in the skin (2-3 cm). You can better see the dilated veins and arteries that deliver blood to the testicle; the system of the smallest vessels that provide lymph drainage from the testicle. The logic of using a microscope is simple: when you see better, there is less chance of damage, the operation is more accurate, the result is better. A small incision promotes faster recovery, does not require long-term limitation of physical activity (which is especially suitable for young people). The next morning after surgery, the patient can be discharged from the hospital.
