Varicocele Embolization: What to Expect

Varicocele Evaluation

At Premier Vascular & Interventional, our expertise is amplified by our close collaboration with referring urologists and primary care physicians. Treatment plans are tailored to patients needs, ensuring optimal clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction. 

Varicocele Embolization

On the day of the procedure you will be sedated and local anesthetic administered, prior to insertion of a tiny catheter in the vein in the neck or groin area. The catheter will be advanced to the level of the varicocele and the target vein will be blocked using metal coils and/or a sclerosant. Following successful embolization the blood flow will be redirected to nearby healthy veins. The catheter is then removed and a small bandage is placed at the access site. 

Post Embolization Recovery

Patients are typically monitored for a short period after the procedure prior to going home the same day. 

Mild scrotal and/or back discomfort are the most common symptoms experienced following varicocele embolization which are easily managed with OTC medications.  It can take a few weeks before you notice the final result of the procedure. Patients typically are able to resume usual activities within 24-48 hours. 

Treatment Outcomes

Patients should expect to experience complete resolution of their initial scrotal discomfort in 10-14 days. Increases in testosterone and fertility may not be seen for at least 3 months. Varicocele embolization does not require incision or cutting that would be seen with surgery allowing for a quicker recovery with little to no post procedure pain, bruising, or scarring. 

Varicocele Embolization: A Life-Changing Procedure

Varicocele Embolization Benefits

Varicocele embolization stands out among treatments, offering long-lasting relief. This minimally invasive procedure ensures reduced recovery time, fewer post-operative complications, and less scarring compared to surgical options. 

Embolization vs. Surgery

When compared to surgical options embolization offers a compelling advantage: Embolization allows for markedly decreased risk with no scrotal scarring or bruising, and little to no risk of infection. Patients often report quicker returns to daily activities and a significant reduction in post-procedure discomfort. 

Why Embolization is Preferred

Our vascular physicians and interventional radiologists perform varicocele embolizations in our state-of-the-art outpatient facilities. Patients remain comfortable while sedated during the procedure and are discharged home the same day with minimal discomfort. Embolization allows for excellent clinical outcomes while avoiding the risks and complications associated with surgery.
