Varicocele is an essential part of andrological urology. Due to its frequency and to the problems connected with it, varicocele became a subject of interest at an early stage in the history of medicine. Questions arose as to how the changes and the consequences resulting from this condition should be treated. Even today, some questions regarding the etiopathology and therapy of varicocele remain unanswered.
