Abstract

Objective: The magnification of the operative microscope or loop used in microsurgical varicocelectomy facilitates defining the anatomical structures. Even if the microsurgical approach is chosen, still, there is a 1% chance of iatrogenic testicular artery ligation and this may lead to the testicular atrophy. In this study, our aim was to present the efficacy and safety of the micro-Doppler ultrasound (USG) used during microsurgical varicocelectomy for the first time in Turkiye.
