Purpose: To determine whether repair of subclinical varicoceles in the right testicle results in significant seminal improvement in patients with clinical left varicocele. Methods: Patients were divided into two groups: Group I (unilateral varicocelectomy) and Group II (bilateral varicocelectomy—subclinical left varicocele). The mean sperm concentration(More)
Purpose: Correlate semen analysis, hormones, and testicular volume with the number of veins ligated. Methods: Patients were divided into three groups: Group 1 (≤5 veins), Group 2 (6–10 veins), and Group 3 (> 10 veins). We evaluated testicular volume, hormonal levels, sperm concentration, and motility before and after the surgical procedure. Results: In(More)
