Varicocele Embolization

Varicocele Embolization

Varicocele embolization is an image-guided procedure that uses a catheter to place a tiny coil and/or embolic fluid in a blood vessel to divert blood flow away from a varicocele.

A varicocele is an enlarged and lengthened vein in a man's scrotum. It can cause pain, swelling and infertility. A clinical examination can confirm the presence of a varicocele and an ultrasound examination may allow further evaluation of the findings.

Varicocele embolization safely relieves that pain and swelling and may improve sperm quality for infertile couples.
