Varicocele

    Overview

    When the veins in the thin pouch of skin that houses your testicles get enlarged, it is known as a varicocele (VAR-ih-Koe-seel) (scrotum). A varicocele resembles a varicose vein and may be seen on the calf of the leg.

    When men have varicoceles, they often have lower sperm counts and worse quality sperm, both of which may lead to infertility. Not that all varicoceles, nevertheless, have an impact on sperm count. A condition known as varicoceles may cause the testicles to refuse to grow or shrink.

    Everything You Need To Know About Varicocele

    What is Varicocele?

    Unlike varicose veins, varicocele occurs in the scrotum and is similar to varicose veins in the legs. One in 6 men has it. However, it is more frequent in younger men, between the ages of Fifteen and 25, than varicose veins inside the leg. Like the legs, varicocele is normally innocuous, but it may cause congenital disabilities by lowering sperm count and decreasing the quality of sperm, much like leg varicose veins.

    Around 15percent of males have a varicocele, whereas 40percent of infertile men have at most one testicle with a varicocele. When the varicocele seems to be the root of the disease, surgical treatment may help reestablish fertility.

    Causes

    Varicoceles may have a variety of reasons. The vein valves may well not function properly (or may be missing). Blood can collect in the veins if blood circulation is slow. Just on the left and right, the bigger veins that go to the heart from either the testicles are joined distinctly. Because of this, the left side of the body has to exert extra force to maintain the blood moving towards the heart. The veins might enlarge if blood flows retrograde or pools in them.

    Swollen lymph nodes or even other tumours behind the abdomen might sometimes obstruct blood supply. Sudden scrotal vein enlargement may occur as a result of this. Managing this circumstance may prove to be tough at times.

    Symptoms

    A varicocele may cause no symptoms at all. Occasionally, it may cause discomfort. The discomfort may be caused by:

    • Uneasiness might range from severe to a faint ache
    • Rise with prolonged standing or physical exercise
    • Take a turn for the worse over time
    • When you’re on your back, you’ll feel much better
    • Fertility problems

    Varicoceles may get larger and more apparent over time. A bag of worms is an apt description of a varicocele. When the disease occurs, the testicle may become inflamed, and it is more common on the bottom left.

    Treatments in Details

    It is often not important to handle a varicocele to avoid complications. Nevertheless, if the varicocele is as follows, you might wish to consider treatment:

    • This creates discomfort
    • Testicular atrophy is a result of this medication
    • This results in infertility

    If you’re considering using infertility treatment procedures, you may want to consider getting therapy. Some individuals may have difficulties with testicular function as a result of this disorder. The sooner you begin therapy, the greater your odds of seeing an improvement in sperm count are.

    In certain cases, wearing baggy underpants or even a jockstrap might offer you extra assistance that can help to relieve discomfort or pain. Other therapy, such as varicocele embolization or varicocelectomy, may become required if your symptoms worsen.

    Varicocelectomy

    A varicocelectomy is indeed a procedure that may be completed at a clinic on the same day. A urologist will enter your body via your belly or pelvic and clamps or tie off any aberrant veins present. Once this occurs, blood may flow around the aberrant veins and into the regular veins. Consult a physician on preparing for the operation and how much to anticipate when the procedure is completed.

    Varicocele embolization

    Varicocele embolization is a somewhat invasive surgery that may be completed in one day. A tiny catheter is placed into a groin or neck vein to deliver the medication. The catheter is then inserted into the varicocele, and a coil is inserted into it. This prevents blood from being able to reach the aberrant veins.

    After the treatments

    Surgical recovery is quick with little discomfort. Avoid exercising for 10-14 days. Work is usually resumed 5–7 days following surgery. You should see your urologist. 3 to 4 months after surgery for infertility, semen analysis is performed.

    After embolization, recovery is quick with just minimal discomfort. After the operation, you should rest for 7-10 days, and you may usually return to work after 1–2 days. Embolization has the same risk of recurrence as surgery, and in certain circumstances, embolization beats surgery.

    Conclusion

    However, When a varicocele is present, infertility is a frequent consequence. Obtain advice from your doctor about consulting with a reproductive expert if you and your spouse are experiencing difficulties becoming pregnant.

    A varicocele may be surgically repaired only if it is giving you discomfort or if you are attempting to get pregnant. Consult urologist doctor to determine which therapy is best for you.

    After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

    The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

    Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
