Dr. Matthew Dunn, Charleston Radiologists interventional radiologist, provides this minimally invasive outpatient treatment of male varicocele. Varicocele occurs in approximately 15% of males. While frequently asymptomatic, varicocele can result in substantial pain and discomfort and can also result in infertility. A combination of venous sclerosis and coil embolization of the dysfunctional veins draining the scrotum leads to substantial improvement in symptoms and has results equivalent to open surgery with 90-95% treatment success rate. This procedure has significantly reduced recovery time compared to open surgical ligation options.
