Varicocele refers to the abnormal diffusion of the veins that causes testicles to drain. Varicocele affects the quantity and quality of sperm production in men. Veins present inside the scrotum of the male reproductive tract are enlarged. Moreover, it is associated with increased temperature in testicles. It is also the reason for pain and irritation in the scrotum. Sperm count and function can get improved via the surgical treatment of Varicocele.
Men at the younger age of about 15-25 years are mostly affected by Varicocele. Varicocele looks like the varicose veins.
What is Varicocele?
Varicocele refers to the enlargement of veins inside the scrotum which holds the testis. The medical terminology used for these veins is Pampiniform Plexus. The network of loose veins present in the scrotum is responsible for transporting blood to the reproductive organs. Pampiniform plexus cools the blood to 34.5 degrees Celsius before it reaches the testis, which is the optimum temperature for sperm production.
When veins in the scrotum get swollen, it affects the cooling system to get supplied to the testis for sperm production. And this is how infertility arises due to Varicocele. The problem can be resolved by varicocele treatment surgery in Dubai. A highly experienced team of specialists is available for Varicocele Treatment Surgery at Bizrahmed (Dubai).
It is more common on the left side of the scrotum and affects the growth of the left testicle. The swollen veins reduce the size of the left testicle which affects sperm production.
Types of Varicocele Treatment
Varicocele gets treated in different ways. Primary treatments available in Dubai are:
It is a complicated surgical procedure in which the scrotum gets accessed through an incision in the abdomen, thigh, or pelvic region. The swollen or damaged veins are tied off, and blood flow gets routed towards the healthier veins. At Bizrahmed we use high-quality microscopes and ultrasounds for varicocele treatment surgery. Mild pain after surgery is normal, and it will get treated with prescribed pain killers.
Varicocele treatment through immobilization is also useful. A catheter gets inserted in your body through openings (neck or groin). Swollen veins in the scrotum get blocked by placing the coil in veins. The loop will stop the flow of blood towards the damaged veins. This method, however, is not that preferred as compared to surgery.
Our doctors at Bizrahmed will suggest you the best possible procedure after your proper checkup. If you have any queries and want to have a checkup for varicocele treatment, you can visit our doctors in Dubai.
